Welcome to my GoodReads author page.
I live in a motorhome full-time and travel the U.S.A. with my husband.

I write all my romance stories as Debra Parmley.
As Debra Bishop, I write fairy tales and fantasy.

Back in 2007, an agent sold my first book, A Desperate Journey, to Samhain Publishing. It came out in ebook in 2008 and in print in 2009. I went on to write for 5 small presses. Later, I republished those titles under my press, Belo Dia Publishing Inc. with new covers and ISBN numbers.

I also write about our travels and I'm working on a memoir of our first year in the motorhome.

Here on Goodreads, you'll see what I'm reading, what I've read, and what I've written. I have a bookshelf of books I keep in the RV to read to my grandchildren and

When I read this book for the second time it was just as good even though I knew what was going to happen. This book is that good. Highly recommend.

“I'm no angel." - Lillian Hayes

"Who wants an angel anyway." - Nicholas Brace

Dangerous Ties by Debra Parmley”
Debra Parmley, Dangerous Ties

“I’m sorry, Rob,” she said softly.

He grunted. “Sorry is a sorry word.”

-A Desperate Journey”
Debra Parmley, A Desperate Journey

“Then she saw him walking from the barn to the bunkhouse.


Hardworking Rob, who did so much for her and never asked for anything in return. Here she’d been indulging herself, enjoying the fancy soap, the nice nightgown and he was still working. Working to provide a place for them to stay. 


He looked up and she raised her hand to wave to him, longing to tell him all she felt in her heart and didn’t know how to put into words. She wanted to say come look at the moon with me, let me wash your hands and your tired face, let me ease your boots off and rest. Rest here with me.

He stopped and stared at her almost as if he’d read her thoughts. 

- A Desperate Journey”

Dangerous Ties by Debra Parmley”
Debra Parmley, Dangerous Ties

“Do you know a cure for me?"

"Why yes," he said, "I know a cure for everything. Salt water."

"Salt water?" I asked him.

"Yes," he said, "in one way or the other. Sweat, or tears, or the salt sea.”
Isak Dinesen, Seven Gothic Tales

“If I know a song of Africa, of the giraffe and the African new moon lying on her back, of the plows in the fields and the sweaty faces of the coffee pickers, does Africa know a song of me? Will the air over the plain quiver with a color that I have had on, or the children invent a game in which my name is, or the full moon throw a shadow over the gravel of the drive that was like me, or will the eagles of the Ngong Hills look out for me?”
Isak Dinesen

“It's an odd feeling-farewell-there is some envy in it. Men go off to be tested for courage and if we're tested at all, it's for patience, for doing without, for how well we can endure loneliness.”
Isak Dinesen

“Write a little every day, without hope, without despair.”
Isak Dinesen
