Main profile

Author Profile: 

Deborah is a single mom and step mom to two young men, navigating life as a new widow. She likes to think of herself as a foodie and has been known to buy her grown step-son’s love and attention with elaborate home-cooked meals. Her younger guy, however, would live on plain pasta if she let him, and though she hasn't yet given in to the temptation the thought has crossed her mind. If she’s not in the kitchen or behind her laptop, you’ll likely find her in the garden with her tomatoes and herbs. Deborah is a dedicated social media professional, content creator, brand ambassador, and blogger at raisingmyboys.net. She likes her wine red, her chocolate dark, and her martinis dirty.

About my kids: 
I have an 11 yo son, with a collection of special needs - ADHD/ODD/gifted/sensory issues/likely Aspie - and assoicated behavioural issues. My big guy is my 21 yo step-son, who lives with us part-time. We successfully got one to adulthood! Woot!
Parenting is...: 
the toughest and most rewarding job ever. And exhausting.
We know you don't have a lot, but when you do, what do you like to do in your spare time?: 
If I ever again find some spare time, I'd spend it gardening, reading, or hiking. Or maybe just enjoying great conversation and great wine with my girlfriends.
When are you at your yummiest?: 
When I'm in my element - outdoors, enjoying nature and loving life.
If someone wrote a biography about you, what would be the title?: 
Bring It On!
What's currently in your purse?: 
Wallet, phone, back-up battery, too many loyalty cards, mascara, powder, an epi pen.
What superhero power would you like to have?: 
I'd love to be able to fly. What a great way to get around.
If we gave you an elephant, where would you hide it?: 
Why would I hide it? Loud and proud, baby!
