Hi. I'm Deborah. 

I'm a journalist: The Economist's 1843, the LA Times, the LA Weekly, Punch Drink, Buzzbands & the Young Presidents Organization.

A short story writer: Slake, Swivel, Fresh Yarn.

I make illustrations and animations for publications like The Portland Mercury & I AM & CO. 

My former band’s music has been on shows like American Idol, Glee, CSI Miami, The Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars as well as showing up in movies and ads.

For the past three summers I've spent time at Breadloaf, The Iowa Writers Workshop and Tin House. 

My first non-fiction book is forthcoming from Harper Wave, summer 2020.

I'm currently finishing up my first novel and am pretty excited about it. Most of the time.

Thanks for visiting!
