Featured Interview With Deb McEwan
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
Originally from Pontypridd, South Wales, I left home aged 17. Following a career of over thirty years in the British Army, my husband and I moved to Cyprus to become weather refugees.
I spend my time writing, entertaining our dog Sandy, and avoiding housework.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I’ve always loved reading and writing stories and started writing song lyrics about fifteen years ago. I collaborated with local musicians and once I started, I couldn’t stop.
My first book, ‘Reindeer Dreams’, is a rhyming children’s story about a reindeer who wants to join Santa’s team. My Aliens series followed shortly after, then the Afterlife series, Jason the Penguin and Unlikely Soldiers.
We adopted our lovely rescue dog Sandy in 2018. I wondered what her story would be if she could talk and so The Island Dog Squad series was born and is told from Sandy’s point of view.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I have a number of favourite Indie Authors including Jean Gill, Rose English, Maria Gibbs and Kelly S Marsden to name but a few.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
Some of the events in the first book of my ‘Unlikely Soldiers’ series are based on my experiences in the British Army. I’m currently working on book four where Mouse (my heroine) finds herself in some tricky situations on the other side of the world.
The book will be published in early 2020.
