About this author

Hi there, my name is Deborah Mitton (never Deb please).
I was born and raised in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada. I’m the middle child on seven, with two older sisters, one brother and three younger brothers. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 43 years and we have 3 grown children and 9 grandchildren.

I fell in love with the written word and story telling early in life. My older sisters would read aloud 20th century poems to me to prepare for oral school presentation. As a result I recited the Ancient Mariner or The Highwayman almost word for word before I could read. My father loved history and I remember watching the Nuremberg trials, war documentary and talk shows on war issues on television. He was over seas and said

Thank you for asking Rebecca.

I do have a plot plan - and yes there were perhaps too many characters at the first of the book. That being said, this is book one is my series and I wanted to introduce characters that would be in the other novels.
I fell in love with most of my characters and I didn't think that Seth would nominate the story the way he did. Crafty little devil, isn't he?(less)

Growing up in the 50's and 60's before cable and the internet we were entertained by being read to. I knew and could recite 20st century poems before I was in grade four. History was my first love and I read anything I could find on European royalty / wars and the US civil war.

I noticed that there was little to read about Canadian History that wasn't boring.
So I took a chance and after retiring started to write about Canadian History (Saint John my home town mostly) and used my second love - Suspense - thrillers to make it interesting. My second novel - One for Sorrow will be before Canada's Confederation.
I have been doing a great deal of research .... did you know that Benedict Arnold lived in Saint John before traders kicked him out for not paying his bills.

I also love Dickens, Elizabeth Goudge and Stephen King...
