Debby was a teaching assistant during the 1990's at several elementary schools for the Halton Board of Education. She saw the need, firsthand, as to how important the inspiring messages of the power of our thoughts and feelings were for children to learn at an early age. It's almost 20 years since she wrote, What a Friend, but she believes it's needed now more than ever before. Debby and her very special husband, Ray, have been happily married since 1977. They live on a farm in West Lincoln, Ontario, Canada. They're so proud of their three adult sons, Dustin 32, Joel 30, and Evan 27 years of age...and they love each of their extra special girlfriends!
