Deborah Nicholson has always loved the arts. She studied dance for over ten years. She took drama in school, working as playwright, stage manager and director. She studied music for almost 20 years and taught music for ten years. She moved into medical administration but kept up her love of arts by working and volunteering at the Calgary Centre for Performing arts, with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, The Calgary International Children’s Festival, Alberta Theatre Projects and Theatre Calgary. Deborah worked as an usher, bartender, shift supervisor, secretary, receptionist, volunteer coordinator and craft designer for these various organizations.


The culmination of her career at the Centre was as House Manager for Theatre Calgary for several years. Leaving this position, and the longing to still go to the theatre every night, led to the creation of the Kate Carpenter Mystery Series (Severn House). There are currently five novels published in this series, available in eight countries around the world, and widely reviewed. Deborah has also completed a medical mystery/thriller, Mind Games.


To balance her career in the arts, she has continued to work in medical administration with various specialties, such as physiotherapy and rehabilitation, dermatology and cosmetic surgery, general practice and now chronic pain. This interesting field has led to her upcoming series of medical thrillers.


Since being published, Deborah has done several workshops and readings to encourage people who dream of writing to stop dreaming and start writing. She has joined several organizations, very interested in literacy and mentorship.


She has made numerous appearances on The Breakfast Show, Shaw Television and was a featured performed in “The Letters”. Deborah is a member of Mystery Writers Ink, The Alexandra Writers Society, Crime Writers of Canada, The Alberta Writers Guild, and Romance Writers of America. Deborah is a great supporter of charity and volunteerism and donates 10% of all profits of her novels to charity.


In 2009 Deborah wrote The Pain Diaries, a play based on her experience at the Chronic Pain Centre. She spent three years researching the topic, interviewing patients and experts in the field. The play won the CPS Pain Awareness Award in May 2009 and was then workshopped in December 2009. Two sold-out public readings happened in February 2010, followed by a one week run at the Grand Theatre in Calgary in May 2010. A movie adaptation of The Pain Diaries is currently in production.

    Good Read

    Reads almost like a screen play. Some of the characters are confusing. One of the main characters does something that is never clarifird. That bothered me. A light rainy day read. Best part is the detail of the setting.

    more from this reviewer

    I wasn't overly impressed with this story. It was just average.

    I wasn't overly impressed with this story. It was just average. It took quite a bit of work to get through this book as it was written in first person limited, and the main character didn't really know a whole lot of what was actually going on. She also took a lot of unnecessary risks. I hate it when characters who are supposedly smart do idiotic things. I did like the setting, the author did a good job exploring the physical landscape.

    The eBook had some formatting problems in the page number area. Sometimes a page turn was advance the count 1 page, sometimes as many as 7 pages. No obvious spelling errors.

    fun easy read

    Your basic murder/detective story. It was a page turner that I finished quickly. Kept my interest right to the end. I like to keep a few of these easy reads on my nook for when I have some time where I'm waiting. I would look at others by this author.
