About Debora Dale
“A lush, sensitive, sensual voice with a hint of gravel like a pack-a-day smoker.”
– Linda Ford
A Glimpse into the heart and mind of Debora Dale
What drives a writer to write? What draws a reader in? Is it to duplicate life? Or to escape, just for a while, into a world where hope lingers, the bad guys get theirs and love, hard-fought, conquers… most.
While others binge on chocolate or ice cream, Debora Dale binges on words and the emotions they can convey. With several small works under her belt, writing is an indulgence of time for Debora.
Always looking deeper, she has a need to fulfill. A need to understand what drives people. What keeps certain people back from tasting more of life than what is familiar, and what drives others to dare to experience it all.
To an outsider, I might be classified as a crazy cat lady since I have six of them in my home – all rescues. To an insider, I’m just an animal lover with cats who also has “adopted” retired lab chimps from Save the Chimps, as well as downed farm animals like cows, pigs, turkeys and more, which have been rescued and given new hope by the amazing people at Farm Sanctuary. I am also a wife, former homeschooling mother of a college-aged daughter, an avid baker, cake decorator, paranormal investigator… and author of romantic suspense.
For me, it often feels like the world is an arm’s reach away. I can enjoy crashing waves on the shore, crisp pine-scented mountain air, pungent aromas from a plethora of ethnic restaurants, smooth jazz from clubs like the Blue Note, museums, street vendors and, yes, even dirty-water dogs… all without leaving my little piece of the world.
Who could ask for more?
I’m a Gemini, you see. As such, I’m always eager for yet another experience – to live and to share. So if you visit here often, you’ll read about all the little things that interest me – from all of the above to paranormal investigations to landscape photography, Hudson Valley getaways, Johnny Depp, Freddie Mercury… and plenty more.
Above all, family matters most to me, but in my free time, I engage in the most exciting and fulfilling work there is.
