Debra's latest novel, THE TIME BENDER, is the first in a 4 book series that pits a teen girl with a social disorder against two cute and clever aliens who aren't quite as human as she'd like. Her previous young adult novel, THE GIRL IN THE TIME MACHINE, presents a brand new twist to time travel. Earlier novels, EXODIA and OUT OF EXODIA, are post-apocalyptic American retellings of an epic event. A SOUL'S KISS, EDGE OF ESCAPE, SHELTERED, and THE GUARDIAN'S DIARY range from psychological thriller to paranormal to coming of age.
