Hello fellow Goodreads reader! I love Goodreads, don't you?
To be honest I've been more on Goodreads as a reader in past years than as an author, which you might guess if you look at the books I've read. I enjoy using the Goodreads app to keep up with the books I've read, just like you do. This winter I created a shelf of all the books my little grandson has so I won't buy duplicates. So you may see shelves with names of family members which helps me when I go shopping. I like giving books as gifts. I'm also doing the readers challenge and raised the bar higher than last year. We'll see if I can read that many and still get my books written. ;-)

Now the author part. I'm a multi-genre author. You'll find my books here in ebook, print and audi

I never have "writer's block" instead I might be taking a long lunch break or a vacation. We usually don't get mad at ourselves for taking lunch breaks or for taking vacations. And when we are done we simply return to work. Writing, as a job, can be that way too. So I give myself permission to take these breaks and I am no longer hard on myself if the work isn't going well. That is simply a sign I might need a break. Often that was all that was needed. To step away and get some fresh air so that I can return fresh to the page.(less)

Everything about it. The more I experience this writer's journey the more clear it is to me. Writing when the stories and the story people come to life is a magical feeling like nothing else and this is what I love most about being a writer.(less)

Branding is – always being yourself.


Remember when I said in Indie Marketing Tip #101 how you could sum up branding by figuring out exactly who you are and then acting like it? Well, it’s a good thing if you look like it too. This was my first professional author head shot and it was taken by Studio at an RWA convention in 2006, not long after my first manuscript, A Desperate Journey, was in the...

Dangerous Ties by Debra Parmley”

“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.”
Karen Blixen, 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?”
Karen Blixen

“The cure for anything is salt water — sweat, tears, or the salt sea.”
Karen Blixen

“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.”
Karen Blixen
