Deb Cushman is the author of fantasy adventure tales for children and teens. She spent her early years reading and listening to stories and writing her own. She wrote, produced, and directed a historical play in the third grade, and in the sixth grade, she amused her classmates with her adventurous spelling-word stories, which often included commercial breaks and songs.
Her work in libraries at the elementary, middle, high school, and college levels, assisted her in eventually creating a library in a school of the arts.
Deb is married and has three sons. She loves spending time with her grandchildren. She lives in the Pacific Northwest where the formidable forests, majestic mountains, and blustery beaches provide ample inspiration for fantasy settings. She loves imagining what it would be like to encounter a faery, travel to Narnia, and fight orcs in Middle Earth, so long as she doesn’t have to leave her living room.
Deb writes exciting fantasy stories that illustrate the importance of friends sharing adventures.
Deb's short stories have been featured in children's magazines. Her debut middle-grade novel, Frigg's Journey to Anasgar, will be published in September 2022 and is the first book of an exciting new fantasy-adventure series Chronicles of Nadavir.
