Debra Mar


My love of writing began as a child. I remember reading my first novel (forget the name of it) where there was a descriptive paragraph detailing a young women laying in a meadow wearing a blouse and skirt looking up at the sky. Simple as that may seem, it triggered something and I was hooked on writing them then on.
My writing journey has been long and varied. Starting later in life, I wrote stories about people who live on the Peninsula in a local magazine called Peninsula Essence. I wrote news scripts for the local radio station RPP FM and updated their website with news items.
I joined the Peninsula Writers’ Club at conception in 2017 and enjoy the encouragement, guidance and support provided by the group.
