Debbie was determined to be a writer, with only a high school education; she rented a typewriter and created her first stories while raising four children. After numerous rejections totaling five years, Debbie resorted to freelance writing for magazines. Starlight was her debut romance novel published by Silhouette. After the success of her first book, Harlequin requested Debbie to write a series of stories, which she named the Navy series. She continued to release sequence novels, sometimes up to three titles in a year. In 1994 Debbie began publishing single books and in 2001, she released her first hardcover title. Debbie has sold more than 170 million books throughout the world. Debbie and her husband, Wayne, have four children, and a few grandchildren. They have homes in Florida and Washington.
