Unlike a majority of authors, I did not always want to be a writer. However, I’ve always been a reader. My mother gave me my first Silhouette romance at fourteen and I was immediately hooked. But it wasn’t until I read Nora’s Blood Brothers series that I thought I would love to write a story like that! Those three books still live with me today and are a big reason I love paranormal. Another huge inspiration in my writing life is Rebecca Zanetti, and her Dark Protector Series as well as her Romantic Suspense series, the Sin Brothers. I also adore the novels of Cathryn Cade…she writes both contemporary and space opera romances.
Debra Elise lives with her husband and their two sons in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. She loves to read, nap, write, watches too much reality TV, and daydreams how to make her characters come alive for her readers. She also enjoys hanging out with other author-type individuals and teasing her three ‘boys’ into displaying their killer smiles.
Most days find her carpooling, avoiding laundry and spending too much time on Facebook and Twitter, and Pinterest, and Instagram and Tumblr <sigh>. She will soon be starting a self-help group for social media addicts.
