Debbie Kaufman was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, USA. She now lives in Georgia with her husband, two dogs, and an awful lot of books on her shelves that are aching to be read.
Hooked on reading from a young age, Debbie’s favorite day growing up was the Saturday the local bookmobile came to her neighborhood. Because of the six-book limit at the bookmobile, she also rode her bike on a five-mile round trip to the library on other days just to keep her addiction satisfied. All that reading lead to her mother’s famous refrain, “Get your nose out of that book.”
Debbie graduated high school and went on to get her Bachelors in English from Bellarmine University and later a Masters from Columbus State University. But one of the smartest things she ever did was chase after and marry the man she’s now been happily wedded to for over thirty years.
Along the years, Debbie had a lot of adventures, including running a rural airport, working as a small town journalist, teaching middle and high school English, and establishing a Chinese adoption program, just to name a few. And through those exciting times, she and her husband managed to raise four children, a multitude of their children's friends, quite a few dogs, and a plethora of hamsters and guinea pigs (whom the children all swore they were responsible enough to have).
These days Debbie writes romantic historical adventure for Love Inspired Historical and devotional stories for Chicken Soup for the Soul. She also enjoys beading, crochet, and any time she gets to spend with her children and grandchildren.
