"My books are fiction, but my God is real!"
About Deborah Lynne, Her Life & Her Career
Deborah Lynne was born in New Orleans, however, spent her entire life in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She was married for 42 years to the love of her life who unfortunately passed away in 2014. Together, they raised 3 children - one son and 2 daughters. Deborah Lynne has also been blessed to have become a Granny 5 times, with the latest addition born in 2018.
As a young girl, Deborah Lynne dreamed of becoming an actress one day. Later in life, she realized that God put that passion insider of her, however He had other plans for all those creative juices flowing within her. Deborah Lynne, instead of playing a part in a film, tv show, or play, gets to be a part of many characters. She gets to live through the characters she creates in her books.
Deborah Lynne's gift of writing is definitely God given. She says, "God gives me the idea for the story, then helps me write the book. I never know how a story will end until I write the ending. One particular book, Hidden Secrets, I didn't even know who the killer was until the end!!" She also chuckles when she thinks back on the idea that she became a published author. English was her worst subject in school.
Ms. Lynne enjoys writing inspirational fiction; romance, mystery and suspense. She began writing after being laid up for a few months due to a car accident she was in, which led her to reading many novels. She eventually had a thought, she could write her own! And that she did. Her first novel was published in 2007. Within 2 years, 3 more of her novels were released.
Deborah Lynne has since been published in a Christian magazine. She's been published through 3 publishing companies and after 7 years with her latest publisher, she decided to self publish.
Deborah has been a key note speaker and a guest speaker at several writers conferences, where she presented on many topics including Romance Writing, How to Get Published and The Do's and Don'ts of Writing.
Up until the passing of her husband, Deborah Lynne only wrote fiction novels. The years following the death of her husband, Deborah Lynne took some time off of writing. God helped guide her through some tough times. That guidance that God gave to her is in her One Year Devotional that she has created to share with others. The devotional is perfectly titled "Guidance From the Light."
In 2019 God gave her an idea to begin another non-fiction book that specifically focused on the blessings of God. It went live June 2019. It too is free through most e-readers, Blessings from God. He had also laid an idea in her heart in 2018 about sharing what God says about us...who we are...what we can accomplish...and more. She toyed with it for awhile, then set it aside to write about the blessings God pours out on us. In 2020, God encouraged her to go back to what God says about His children. Hopefully in 2021 it will be available to all. Working title is - But God says.
In the meantime, Deborah Lynne's books are being spread around the world touching others lives. Her hope is that her audience continues to read what God gives to her to send out into the world, and her ultimate hope is that they are blessed by the reading of her publications. And she gives ALL the glory to God!!!
