Debra graduated from Charles F. Brush High School and from Cuyahoga Community College.

Debra has dedicated her 1st book:
AbracaDEBRA’s…Enchanted gifts & recipes from the heart to her special mother Rosemary Wilburn.  Numerous times she had been asked for these recipes & ideas.  So here they are GIFTS & RECIPES MADE FROM THE HEART!

She has donated proceeds to the Red Cross & booking appearances at book stores, coffee houses, craft stores, fundraisers, malls, schools, teas and library workshops.

Debras love for dogs was the incentive to write her second book.                                                                                     

Max and Morgan’s ABC’s is a true story about a very special little girl named Morgan and Debra’s dog Max.  This book is a fun way to help children learn their ABC’s!

 "This book is a unique approach for any child in learning their ABC's."
