Meet the Author

A descendant in a long line of schoolteachers, Debra planned to follow family tradition until she put pen to paper and wrote her first novel. For Debra, there was no going back. It took five years and four completed novels before she finally sold to a publisher. Her first novel, an historical, was published in 1994. Three years later, she debuted in the contemporary romantic suspense market with the Silhouette Intimate Moments line.

Her small-town Oklahoma roots help her give her characters a warmth and depth that readers love. Equally inspired by Nancy Drew and fairy tales, Debra loves to combine romance and suspense in both contemporary and historical novels.

One of Debra's favorite aspects of writing is the research. She believes in obtaining firsthand experience whenever possible and has frequented a shooting range, observed brain surgery, and even interviewed a notorious cop killer.

In addition to writing, Debra works as an administrative assistant in the oil industry. An avid history buff, she enjoys traveling and has visited places as diverse as Europe and Honduras, where she and her husband served as part of a medical missions team. Often asked why she writes romance, Debra says it's because she believes in heroes and heroines who, after fighting their way through often-staggering obstacles, are rewarded with a happy ending. When the story's over, their future is just beginning.

Born in the foothills of the Kiamichi Mountains, Debra still lives in her native Oklahoma with her husband and their two beagles, Maggie and Domino. Debra invites her readers to contact her at P.O. Box 30123, Coffee Creek Station, Edmond, OK, 73003-0003.

Presley, Oklahoma firefighter Shelby Fox hears a scream from the nearby home of M.B. Perry. She races over to insure the schoolteacher is okay only to find the woman on fire in her bed with a man watching. The apparent arsonist attacks Shelby. --- Police Detective Clay Jessup visits his close friend Shelby at the Presley medical Center where she recovers from her beating, but cannot remember the assault or why she was found unconscious in the home of M.B. by her crewmates working the fire at that house. Shelby plans to find out one way or another what her selected amnesia hides from her. As they follow clues at new arsons that use microwave ovens amongst other devices to set deadly infernos she begins to recall bits of the atrocity she observed and how she became a victim. The arsonist killer wants his only witness dead while Clay wants the woman he loves safe and sound by his side. --- Rightfully so, the romance takes a back seat to the well written arson investigation that has the two protagonists seeking a serial killer who in turn is seeking the heroine before she identifies him. The action-packed story line grips the reader from the moment that Shelby intrudes on the horrifying burning of her friend and never slows down through a series of fires until the final confrontation. Though the romantic relationship never heats up, the third Hot Zone thriller (see MELTING POINT and BURNING LOVE) is an exciting tale worth reading. --- Harriet Klausner
