Deb is a former adjunct English professor who works as a freelance writer/editor and literacy tutor. Her writing has appeared in various newspapers and magazines as well as in academic and literary journals. Her yet-to-be published memoir, Professor Never, recounts the adventures in academic life that led her to leave the academy behind.

Deb is currently finishing a second book about a year of her childhood spent as a nine-year-old in a rural Connecticut town. In this collection of personal essays, Deb delves into the joys, freedoms, fears, and misunderstandings of a year of her youth to explore what we mean by “innocent childhood.”

When not writing or tutoring, Deb gardens, cans vegetables, and bakes bread.  Often, she goes AWOL. When she does, you can find her out on her bike chasing hopefully after the wind.
