Deborah Raney's Bio:
Deborah Raney dreamed of writing a book since the summer she read all of Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House books and discovered that a little Kansas farm girl could, indeed, grow up to be a writer. After a happy twenty-year detour as a stay-at-home wife and mom, Deb began her writing career. Her first novel, A Vow to Cherish, was awarded a Silver Angel for Excellence in Media and inspired the acclaimed World Wide Pictures film of the same title. Since then, her books have won the RITA Award, the HOLT Medallion, the National Readers' Choice Award, as well as being a finalist for the Christy Award. Deb enjoys speaking and teaching at writers' conferences across the country. She and her husband, artist Ken Raney, make their home in their native Kansas and love the small-town life that is the setting for many of Deb's novels. The Raneys enjoy gardening, teaching young married couples in their church, watching their teenage daughter's ball games, and traveling to visit three grown children and a precious little grandson who lives much too far away.
