Debi's first novels, Nirvana Bites and Trading Tatiana, were published by Orion. She writes contemporary urban thrillers, set among the sub-cultures of SE London. These days, Debi spends most of her time helping other writers to perfect their novels through critiques, mentoring, courses, Book Doctor sessions and creative writing workshops.
She edits in all genres and several authors that she has worked with have been signed up with agents and gone on to see their books published. Debi lives in South London with her partner and two teenage sons. She sometimes feels like a tiny island of oestrogen afloat in a sea of testosterone and smelly socks. (http://www.debialper.co.uk/)
