DeeDee's passion is writing and she thrives on all of its complexities. She enjoys building the characters, deciding how their lives will turn out and enjoys creating the twists and turns along the way. She is quoted saying, "There is no greater compliment than when someone has just read my book and they express sadness, elation or anger. I love moving people with my words and story lines. My hope is readers will enjoy reading my books as much as I have enjoyed writing them."
