About: Deb Shirley

I am a Christian freelance writer and speaker living in the beautiful state of Alabama. My home is situated a stones throw away from Tannehill Ironworks Historical Park. I've faced many adversities in life. However, I view these hardships as opportunities to minister to both believers and non-believers, especially in the areas of infertility, death, divorce, and remarriage. My desire as a Christian writer and speaker is to utilize these spiritual growth experiences to offer hope and effect change in the lives of my readers. I'm actively involved at Tannehill Valley Baptist Church where I serve on the Web Team and teach a ladies Sunday School class. My husband and I love to travel. I've cruised Alaska and both the Eastern and Western Caribbean and visited twenty-three of the fifty U.S. states. We recently purchased a 2002 Monaco Diplomat motorhome and traveled cross country to the Grand Canyon. Of all the places we've seen, Lake Tahoe is our favorite vacation spot. While Andy enjoys the slopes at Heavenly, I prefer curling up in front of a warm fire reading and writing. The Grand Canyon is running a close second. It is definitely God's handiwork. Through the years, my non-fiction pieces have been published in Journey, Live, The Alabama Baptist, and some local papers. My passion is writing fiction. I've completed three novels and am currently pitching them to publishers. I'm also working on two more novels. My first short story was published in 2005 and is available on my website if you'd like to read about me. I've also written a Bible Study entitled "Fight for Freedom." I would love the opportunity to minister to your women. To arrange for me to speak to your group or lead a weekend retreat, please contact me via email. I do not charge a set fee. Instead, I ask that you cover my expenses and provide a love offering.
