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 to 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.

Debra has interviewed cover models for Cover Model Corner since 2011 when she won a breakfast in bed with a cover model photoshoot with Jimmy Thomas. Her interviews have been picked up by Affaire de Coeur magazine since 2014. Though her original website is no longer up, you can find old and new interviews on her Cover Model Corner blog here:

It was no surprise to friends when Debra was hired as the host of a new radio show on Blog Talk Radio called Book Lights: Shining a Light on Good Books for Readers Entertainment/Circle of Seven. She interviewed authors of fiction every Tuesday night from April 6th, 2016 to May 17th, 2017. For links to Debra’s shows and a list of authors, see below.

Today Debra enjoys teaching authors how to get over their fear of live radio interviews. Her classes are moving online in late June 2021 to her new Beautiful Day Dreamers School on Teachable. You can visit her school here:
