My mother tells me I was born a very long time ago, but I'm not so sure--my mother can't be trusted. These things I do know: I was raised in Texas on barbeque, Mexican food and beer. I am the author of Wanna Get Lucky? (A NY Times Notable Crime Novel and double RITA™ Finalist), its five sequels, Lucky Break being the latest, and four between-the-books novellas. Currently I'm stretching my writer muscles working on a women's fiction/contemporary romance series set in Napa, a dark thriller, a romantic suspense series featuring a female helicopter pilot, as well as the next Lucky adventure--all very different projects. So, if you see me with a glass of Champagne in hand, you'll understand. I can usually be found at the bar, but also at www.deborahcoonts.com.
