Deborah M. Hathaway graduated from Utah State University with a bachelor's degree in English and an emphasis in Creative Writing. As a young girl, she devoured Jane Austen's novels while watching and re-watching every adaptation of Pride & Prejudice she could, entirely captured by all things Regency and romance.

Throughout her life, she wrote many short stories, poems, and essays, but it was not until after her marriage that she was finally able to complete her first romance novel, attributing the completion to her courtship with, and love of, her charming, English husband.

Deborah finds her inspiration for her novels in her everyday experiences with her husband and children and during her travels to the United Kingdom, where she draws on

I started the group, All Clean Romance, for that very reason: I hated having to stop reading novels, and I hoped I wasn't the only one who felt that way. I wanted to create a group where anyone could find a clean romance novel, no matter the genre, no matter the age of the reader. All clean romance for all kinds of people. That's why I write clean romance novels, too! Thanks again for your question!(less)
