Deborah Malone: "I just want the reader to enjoy a good clean mystery without having to worry about compromising their morals and do it while having a little fun."
Writers come up with ideas for stories through various avenues. If you've ever wondered about writing a story based in a real location, I think you'll be encouraged by Deborah Malone's experiences. Enjoy! ~ Dawn. Why I Wrote Chilled in Chattanooga. Chilled in Chattanooga is the fourth book in ...

Recently hubby and I were blessed to hear Christian Success Coach Dr. Dave Martin speak at our church. With thought-provoking concepts and stand-up-comic-belly-laugh humor, he preached an entire sermon focused on one verse with the acronym DARE. God can do anything, you know—far more than you ...

Story
Tagline
Creates characters with heart...stories for the soul.
Introduction

I write for the Christian market. Maybe you've seen some of my short stories like the one in the book Family Ties: Thirteen Short Stories (seen above). Lately, I've been writing novels. I'm especially fond of the second half of the 19th century. Gotta love those cowboys!
 
I spend hours reading. You can keep up with my bookshelf by clicking the Goodreads link. Also, you can visit my website for reviews and other information on Christian books, and/or join me on Twitter.
 
Other hobbies: gardening (except in the hottest part of summer), PBR (gotta love those cowboys!), NASCAR, NFL (Go, Panthers! Go...oh yeah, Cowboys!), antiquing, and old movies.
