Debra has many years of experience interviewing authors, and cover models, and even hosted an online radio show.

During the American Title II contest, before Debra’s first book came out, she had a website to promote her book and encourage readers to vote online for her. Debra started interviewing authors of fiction on her Make Believe Monday’s blog which ran every Monday from Jan. 9th, 2006 to Aug. 23rd, 2010.
