Deborah Froese first began plotting novels while falling asleep as a young child. Sleep didn't come easily, but plot curves did! That preoccupation eventually led to a career as a writer and editor. Currently, Deborah works as the part-time executive editor for Indigo River Publishing, an indie publisher based in Florida. She continues to serve a number of freelance editing clients and works on her own writing projects from her home in Winnipeg, Canada.
