Meet the Author




Debra Salonen wrote her first screenplay at age 11 for the television series Flipper. The plot involved the older brother's romantic interest in a young girl, presumably Debra. The storyÿ- like Debra's showbiz careerÿ- never evolved past the "what if?" stage, but Debra's addiction to writing has never faltered.

"I've always found a way to incorporate writing into any job I happened to hold at the time...well, except for my stint as a flaxseed counter in college," she said dryly. "Don't askÿ-- it wasn't pretty."

As an aide in a preschool, she went from distributing milk and cookies to writing the monthly newsletter. Her stringer work for a local newspaper turned into a full-time position as a feature writer and assistant editor. Salonen says that exposure to human-interest stories fed her writer's soul, laying the groundwork for a wealth of imaginary characters and situations.

"Modern fiction provides the medium to touch people's lives. If your characters are real, in the sense they face real problems and possess real hopes, wants, needs and flaws, people can identify with them. My stories are about imperfect people who must learn life's lessons, heal old wounds and find inner forgiveness before they can truly love another person. I think these are universal themes most people, men and women, can relate to."

Salonen, who lives in the foothills near Yosemite, credits the support of her family with a hand in her success. "My ivory tower is on the second floor of our house. My son recently used an extension ladder to hang a wind-chime outside my window to encourage the creative spirits to stop by for a visit."

She also recognizes the value of networking and associating with fellow writers. "The first hurdle you face as a writer is admitting you are oneÿ- like any other addiction."

"I'm thrilled by the validation publication provides, but I also feel a sense of accomplishment for all those people who have helped me learn my craft and encouraged me to believe in myself. Writing is a team effort directed by life experience, associations, imagination, and spiritual connectedness," Salonen said.

Salonen is currently at work on two new projects for the Superromance line. Her Flipper screenplay is on the shelf collecting dustÿ-- right where it belongs.

    Can Jenna make Shane see HER?

    This second addition to Spotlight on Sentinel Pass series adds to the wonderful overall story of the town being a TV sitcom - Sentinel Passtime. So many characters to profile and create LOL <BR/><BR/>Jenna Murphy is the best friend to the heroine, Libby, of BABY BY CONTRACT and our new hero, Shane Reynard, is the best friend of the hero, Cooper, in BBC and they do have a link to each other from the past--his brother, Adam. <BR/><BR/>Jenna and Shane had went to the same college, even had a class together but never really got together. Jenna and he went to the same party one night--that was the end of Jenna's college. She came home a few days later and has never left. <BR/><BR/>Shane takes the job of producer of the show but plans to be involved in all the stages personally. He needs to see Jenna and admit he's guilt to her. <BR/><BR/>Shane doesn't know how to tell her without her turning away from him and he doesn't want that. He's so mixed up he even hires her to work on a script everyday with him--what's he doing?! On top of that he sends Jenna's mother, Bess, for a screen test to see if she can play one of the characters in the show LOL <BR/><BR/>Jenna and her hypochondriac mother run her father's dream The Mystery Spot. A tourist trap of possible scientific anomalies but really optical illusions but they needed the income from it. <BR/><BR/>What a wonderful story with all the ups-n-downs of a real romance a little mystery adds to the story too.
