About the Author
Debbie Walkingbird is the second born daughter in a family of five girls. She is a wife of thirty-eight years. She is a mother of two daughters and grandma to four. She enjoyed eleven years working in the computer industry for a “Fortune Five Hundred” company.
Debbie currently lives in Eastern Oregon. She resides in a very rural area; there is one stop light for the entire county. It is the perfect place to find the peace and quiet to write and think. She spends time in her garden. Enjoys walks along a river that is free flowing from its head waters to the where is joins the Columbia River. She loves the wide-open space this area of Oregon offers.
Debbie deals with a mental illness that has her out of the workforce. She is in the process of writing about how she deals with it. One thing for sure is she takes her medication and flows with the cycles of her illness. Her illness gives her a great creative that she expresses in her use of photography, Photoshop and writing.
Her first book is a kid’s book, “Teamwork and Buttered Bread”. With a second “Wisdom of a Woman”, a book of quotes her mom left. And she hopes her third book will be the story of how she has lived with her illness.
