Deborah has always been a believer; a believer in the give-away life; a believer in the creative life; a believer in the feminine definition of power, where everyone is her grandchild.

She drew, made quilts and was drawn into the Names AIDS Memorial Quilt project. She went deeper. She listened. She went deeper. She found fairy tale. She went deeper. She found herself.

She creates fairy tales for others and becomes stronger. She gives workshops and becomes stronger. She writes articles and becomes stronger.  Now she has written a series of three books, The Quiet Triumph of the Heart. Women, with our innate knowledge of creation, must not doubt what we believe.

"What a gift you have to make others so happy at a difficult occasion. I was delighted with the story and will remember it always."

– Ellie Berry after her husband George's memorial service.
