Writer Fairy of the Week: Deb Sanders!

Deb was the first member of my RWA (Romance Writer’s of America) chapter to invite me to write at a coffee shop. I think my first newbie questions were  “Who is WIP?” and “Is head-hopping POV contagious?”

Deb smiled and answered questions for two hours without any attempt to escape through the nearest exit. To my amazement, she asked if I wanted to meet on a weekly basis. I had found my first Writer Fairy.

Despite two out-of-state moves, a full time job, and pursuing her writing career, Deb continues to smile and answer my questions. Actually I’m not sure if she’s smiling, but that’s how I prefer to imagine her. For all I know, she could be putting a Jillian-asked-another-question notch underneath her writing desk. In which case, she’s probably writing on the floor by now.

Without Deb my website wouldn’t have its beautiful lark header, and my business cards would be blank on one side. Worst of all, I wouldn’t have a wonderful friend and supporter of my writing career. Deb, you’re the best!

Deb writes romantic suspense and paranormal novels and published her first Indie book in November 2011. She is listed at #38 in the IReaderReview list of the TOP 50 INDIE AUTHORS for April 2012.

    You are too gracious, Jillian. We’re all in this together. Without the support and solidarity of our fellow writers, this industry would be quite daunting. I’m here whenever you need me. If I don’t know the answer, my own writer fairies usually do! Hugs!

    My reply:
    Deb, you’re correct about the importance of support and solidarity among the writer community.

    (Due to technical difficulties beyond my understanding, Deb’s photo and website link also wouldn’t appear in my previous versions of this post. Thanks for uploading them yourself, Deb! See how indispensable she is!)

  2. Jillian,
    Thanks for sharing what a class act Deb is. I had the privilege to be in her critique group for a very short time, and it was a fabulous experience.

    • Chris, I know Deb will appreciate your comments. My face time with her was short, too. Deb’s way of connecting with people proves your point about what a class act she is.
