Deborah Reber

Deborah Reber is a New York Times bestselling author and speaker who moved her career in a more personal direction in 2016 when she founded TiLT Parenting, a website, weekly podcast, and social media company for parents like her who are raising differently wired children. The TiLT Parenting Podcast has grown to be a top podcast in iTunes' Kids and Family category, with more than 225,000 downloads and a slate of guests that includes high-profile thought leaders across the parenting and education space. Debbie's next book is "Differently Wired: Raising an Exceptional Child in a Conventional World" (Workman Publishing, 2018).

Prior to launching TiLT, Debbie spent the past fifteen years writing inspiring books for women and teens. In doing so, she built a successful brand as a teen authority, was frequently interviewed and spoke about issues like media literacy, self-esteem, and confidence, and consulted for clients including the Girl Scouts, the Disney Channel, McGraw Hill, and Kaplan.

Debbie is no stranger to writing and publishing books. Since 1999, she's authored many books, including Doable: The Girls' Guide to Accomplishing Just About Anything (Beyond Words/Simon Pulse 2014), Language of Love (Simon Pulse 2012), Chill: Stress-Reducing Techniques for a More Balanced, Peaceful You (Simon Pulse 2008), In Their Shoes: Extraordinary Women Describe Their Amazing Careers (Simon Pulse 2007), the teen self-help series Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul: The Real Deal (HCI 2005-2006), Run for Your Life: A Book for Beginning Women Runners (Perigee 2002), and more than a dozen preschool books based on the series Blue's Clues. In 2008, she had the privilege of creating and editing the first-ever series of teen-authored memoirs with HCI Books, Louder Than Words (six books published between 2009 - 2010).

Before becoming a writer, Debbie worked in TV and video production, producing documentaries and PSAs for CARE and UNICEF, working on Blue's Clues for Nickelodeon in New York, and developing original series for Cartoon Network in Los Angeles. She has an MA in Media Studies from the New School for Social Research and a BA in Communications from Pennsylvania State University.

In the summer of 2013, Debbie moved from Seattle to Amsterdam, where she currently lives with her husband Derin, homeschools her 13-year-old son Asher, and serves as lap-of-choice for her mischievous cat, Alex. She is an avid runner, traveler, and hiker, and claims reality shows and Twizzlers as her guiltiest of pleasures.
