Freelance Writing & Photography
A freelance writer and photographer, Deb enjoys writing outdoors in the piney woods of Mandeville,
Louisiana. One day it’s the porch swing, another on the back deck, but never far away from deer
grazing in the back woods or hummingbirds fighting over the feeders.
A degree in Media Arts and Business Studies from Tulane University combined with a 30 year
corporate career with Hibernia National Bank and IBM offers the necessary credentials to provide
writing, photography and social media services.

Deb has more than 800 published articles earning seventeen writing/photography awards in the last
eight years. And a moderator for the 2008 Tennessee Williams Festival travel panel and a panelist
for their 2009 blogging panel.
She co-founded the Northshore Literary Society to help grow literary endeavors and support
novelists in St. Tammany Parish. For more details visit www.northshoreliterarysociety.com.
