Debbie Macomber Books

Surviving against all odds to become a writer can be best exemplified by Debbie Macomber, who is today one of the most heartthrob American authors. Born in 1948 in Yakima, Washington with dyslexia, she couldn’t read until the age of 12 and didn’t continue education after leaving high school. But her inner charm at stringing words was always present and gave the world an amazing plethora of stories. She started her career on with various freelancing work for different magazines. The world wasn’t all welcoming to her from the very start and she tasted success after years of frugal living. Little did the people who rejected her works knew that she would someday outshine everyone to perch on the top of romance-hierarchy.

She made her debut with her novel Starlight, but it received a tepid response. She had a major change in her writing style in 2002 when she focused more on exploring the friendship between women and leave the traditional boundaries of romance, and there she hit the perfect chord. She continued to work and explore many areas like non-fiction, cookbooks, and even children’s books. Her writing is also deeply influenced by strong Christian beliefs and is devoid of any sexual content. She now owns a Yarn shop in Port Orchard Washington and spends the winter down south in Florida. She is a mother of four and now a happy and proud grandmother as well.

Her works include the Cedar Cove series which consists of 12 books. Next came the 11 book series, Blossom Street, followed by Rose Harbor, Orchard Valley, and Wyoming Brides. She churns out a healthy dose of 2-3 books a year. The Heart of Texas, which starts with Lonesome Cowboy and ends with the 8th book, Return to Promise is one of her best series. It’s a microcosm of American culture and a deeply moving set of novels. It’s no wonder that she stayed for a spectacular 750 weeks on the New York Time’s Bestsellers list for all her novels. But still, her fans are never satisfied and wants more. Even at the age of 68, she dutifully jots down at least 2 novels a year to calm her growing fans. Many believe that the best is yet to come.

Debbie Macomber AWARDS:

She is also a three-time recipient of the prestigious B. Dalton Award. In 2005, she was voted by fans to win the inaugural award of Quill Award for romance, for her classy novel, 44 Cranberrt Point (Cedar Cove Series). As a recognition of her contributions to the American literary scene, she was awarded the Romantic Times Magazine Distinguished Lifetime Achievement Award.

Debbie Macomber BOOKS INTO MOVIES/TV:

With over 170 million copies sold, the movie industry couldn’t ignore her for long. Her humorous style and light-hearted narrative made four of her books into movies. Mrs. Miracle came first in (2009), followed by Trading Christmas (2011) and a three-season TV series, Cedar Cove (2013). But the epitome of her Hollywood prowess was proven by the Hallmark Channel’s top-watched movie of the year 2009 Debbie Macomber’s Mrs. Miracle. Call Me Miss Miracle was the next release and it was too well received. Talks are on to turn her novel When Christmas Comes into a movie.

BEST Debbie Macomber BOOKS:

Debbie’s best books have to be from the Cedar Cove and the Midnight Sons series. Both the series have astonishing books which can be read again and again.

In the Cedar Cove series 204 Rosewood Lane and A Cedar Cove Christmas, gives the reader a glimpse into the world of pure romance. The Blossom Street series is another set of masterpiece spread over 11 books. It is a sweet and charming, but deeply moving at some parts, portrayal of a love story in a knitting class.

The best among this series is hard to pick but going by her fans, it has to be A Good Yarn and A Turn in the Road. Her fans will always remember her for her amazing narrative, which flows as swift as the wind. Coupled with humorous takes on the everyday tapestry of love and relationships, her books are golden and immortal. She will stay as long as love does.
