Deborah Diner was born into a military family, and grew up moving all over the country. She has always loved books and words, and wanted to be a writer even before she could read. Some of her earliest memories are of dictating stories to her mother, who typed them up and bound them into her first published books. In college, Deborah continued developing her writing as she studied English, Astronomy, and Elementary Education at the University of Virginia. She currently teaches fourth grade in Winchester, Virginia.
When she is not working on her writing, she enjoys embroidery, playing the violin, and indoor rock climbing. Deborah is repped by Kelly Dyksterhouse.
Fun Fact: When she was a toddler, Deborah’s family visited Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson. Their visit was cut short when she ducked under the ropes and jumped on Jefferson’s bed!
