Debbie enjoys nature, history, visiting historical houses and would love to visit some of Australia’s haunted houses and other spooky places. In 2013, she visited Monte Cristo, Australia’s Most Haunted House and wrote about it here.
Her writing is inspired by the movies she watched during her childhood, including Alfred Hitchcock and the Australian classic ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’. Her writing is also inspired by various horror movies and books which include Gothic fiction and the classics. Debbie is currently working on some short stories and various novel ideas. She lives in Central Western New South Wales, with her husband and two children.
