Author Debra Parmley believes "Every day we are alive is a beautiful day," and she likes to give her readers and her story people a story with a happy ending. A multi-genre author, Debra's first romance, A Desperate Journey, a gritty western historical, was published in 2008 in eBook and 2009 in print after being selected as one of ten novels to compete in the American Title II contest put on by Dorchester Publishing and Romantic Times Book Lovers magazine. One year later, her agent sold the book to Samhain Publishing, a small traditional press that offered an advance. A hybrid author, she went on to write for five small presses before opening her own boutique press, Belo Dia Publishing Inc. Belo Dia is Portuguese for beautiful day. An Air Force veteran's wife, Debra is most known for writing military romantic suspense. She also writes contemporary romance, historical romance, dystopian romance, holiday romance, fairy tales, fantasy, and poetry. All of her stories contain some element of suspense. Founder of Shimmy Mob Memphis, a chapter of Shimmy Mob international, an organization that raises funds for local domestic abuse shelters around the world, Debra is a retired belly dancer. Several of her books feature belly dancer heroines. A world traveler, Debra often brings home folk tales and music from countries she has visited and has sold travel and set foot in over thirteen countries. She married her high sweetheart, whom she asked out after a five-dollar bet, and she and her husband, after living in five states with two sons, have lived for over 23 years just outside Memphis, TN. Five of her favorite things are shooting primitive archery with her Mongolian horse bow, shooting long guns, shooting pool, walking on a sandy beach, and hearing from her readers. Each card and letter is a joyful treasure, like finding that perfect shell on the beach. Visit www.debraparmley.comRead more Read less
