Debbie Kaufman was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky with the exception of a few early years in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. She now lives in Georgia, giving her a mix of accents that leaves both Northerners and Southerners suspicious of her true origins.
Along the years, Debbie had a lot of adventures, including running a rural airport, working as a small town journalist, teaching middle and high school, and establishing a Chinese adoption program, just to name a few. And through those exciting times, she and her husband managed to raise four children, homeschooling the older ones in their elementary years.
These days Debbie writes award-winning stories and enjoys spending time with her husband, her four children, her grandchildren, and her two dogs.
