Marcia Talley

Debra, you are spot-on! Thanks for sharing your story with us.

My Hannah Ives mystery series was orphaned twice, until she found a new home at Severn House. Keep writing ... is key. I love the idea of a reluctant chef!

Elaine Viets

The book has some hilarious recipes from the 1950s, Marcia,including Jell-O in a can.

Debra H. Goldstein

Thank you for having me today. Marcia,you are an inspiration! Thank you for the encouragement and setting the example.


That is true about much of life. We need others to help and encourage us even if we have to do the heavy lifting ourselves.

Debra H. Goldstein

Agree, Mark. The mystery community is wonderful about encouraging.

Grace Topping

You've had quite the publishing journey, Debra, but through it, you've showed us an example of carrying on when others might have given up in despair. Wishing you continuing success in your writing career.

Beth Schmelzer

I am seeing the encouragement I know from the first commenters. Debra, you deserve congrats on your persistence and these friends are all in your corner!

Paula Gail Benson

Congratulations, Debra, on much deserved success. And, thanks, Elaine, for hosting.

Debra H. Goldstein

Thank you for stopping by and for the congrats. Also appreciative to Elaine for hosting me.

Debra, I have read and enjoyed your books, and I didn’t know why there were no others in the series. I’m so sorry that happened to you but I’m glad you haven’t given up. You can count on me as a fan!

Debra H. Goldstein

Thank you for your kind words. They are the kind I dreamed about when I continued writing.
