And now, Deana!

  1. How did you know you wanted to become a writer? I’ve always been a writer, even as a girl. I just didn’t know about being a published author.
  2. What steps did you take to follow this dream? I waited until my seven kids were grown,then started writing, joined some organizations, attended conferences, took some college classes. Most important, I just wrote.
  3. What is the hardest thing about writing? Life and all its distractions and responsibilities make it hard to stay at it for the endless hours I need to when I’m working.
  4. What is your newest release? Cracks in the Ice was released last October by Write Integrity Press.
  5. What are you currently working on now? I’m working on a middle grade historical fiction.
  6. What is your favorite season of the year? I like spring the best. I hate being cold, and I don’t like being hot. I think spring is perfect. Oh goodness. I just realized that the character in my book has said the exact same thing. I guess I’m really in his head!
  7. If you could go anywhere, where would it be and why? I’d like to visit the former Soviet Union, the small Baltic nations.
  8. What is something quirky your readers would like to know about you that they don't already? Probably everything they already know about me IS quirky. Like how I drive eight hours to do a thirty minute presentation at a school, then drive back home. That’s pretty quirky.
  9. Who is your biggest support and why? My husband is absolutely my biggest support. He helps me with all things technical, never complains about things like question # 8 and gives me great business advice. He’s a fantastic business manager, and my number one fan.
  10. Where can fans find you on the web? I’d love them to visit me at www.BooksByDeanna.
Here's a snippet of what her books is about:

“We skate deliberately over the wide dangerous cracks, where lesser skaters might fall and never recover ...” Gina Mangalli, niece of a mafia don, has dreams of Olympic gold as a figure skater. When tragedy strikes, her life spins out of control, and then a rash decision changes Gina's life forever. The burden of guilt causes a spiral that carries her further from the life she had always dreamed for herself. Have things gone too far? Can her hopes and dreams be restored or is it too late?
