Deborah L. Harris resides in Chicago, IL where she currently resides with her husband and son. She is currently employed with the United States Postal Service. Deborah has enjoyed the craft of writing for many years. She feels that writing has allowed her the opportunity to communicate ideas beyond her wildest imagination.
Deborah enrolled in a six week writing course titled, “The Writer’s Loft” in which Jerry Cleaver was the instructor, where she was taught that a good story can never be denied. She also took a few writing courses on line in which the fundamentals of writing were refreshed, and instrumental in providing her with the proper writing technique. Deborah applied the tools given to her, along with her creative mind, and decided that ideas without execution are dead and committed to writing her first novel titled “Divine Order.”
Since the release of her self published novel in July of 2008, she has been on several radio stations interviewing about her new novel throughout the country. Divine Order was featured in Denver’s “Body Of Christ News” for Black History Month. She recently took second place in a competition on the “Out The Box” Blog Talk Radio, which is connected with the “Go On Girl Book Club” the largest African American Book Club.
