An award-winning writer/novelist, former journalist and corporate escapee, D. L. Koontz (aka Debra Koontz Roberson) writes about what she knows: muddled lives, nail-biting unknowns and eternal hope.

She is a keen history enthusiast and a lifelong bibliophile. When not penning novels or reading, she can be found running her dogs, snapping pictures, planning another trip, listening to music, or watching British miniseries. She lives with her husband on a beef cattle farm in the coastal plains of southern Georgia.

Her novels blend historical intrigue and modern-day suspense with romance, and a touch of the mysterious. She has been published in seven languages.

A mother and step-mother, she is avid about her family and her faith.

Her mantra: "Th

“If you believe the Bible is true, you ought to know that demons are real. The Bible is filled with references of evil and demons, and Christ repeatedly cast out demons, so I believe the universe is much more complex and mysterious than it may appear to our senses.”
D.L. Koontz, Crossing Into The Mystic

“Funny isn't it, that such a large percentage of people believe in the possibility of ghosts yet scoff at stories about then; whereas less than a fifth of one percent think there actually may be vampires, yet glamorize and romanticize them into millions of dollar of sales. Perhaps the real irony is that the thought of ghosts is just a little too close to people’s comfort level.”
D.L. Koontz, Crossing Into The Mystic

“I find it sad that more Christian literature does not address miracles, and the possibility of demons in our midst. Jesus performed countless miracles in his life that were clearly discussed in the New Testament. And, he cast out demons. Why do some Christians act as those the potential for miracles died with Him? Why do people believe in angels, but not demons? Both were evident in the Bible.”
