Deborah Clayton grew up on a farm and attended Des Moines Area Community College. She holds a Degree in Architectural Drafting and lives in Greenfield, Iowa, with her fiancé, her daughter and a host of animals.
Deborah has a busy life, working full time as a home designer and architectural drafter and looking after a young family, but when she has time to relax she enjoys traveling, snowboarding and letting her artistic side flourish.
But she is most comfortable writing and already has 3 self-published picture books to her name. Inspired in part by her daughter, Deborah’s books reflect what she and other kids might face in their lives and she hopes that they will inspire young children to expand their imaginations and begin telling their own creative stories.
In the future, Deborah would love to travel to the Pacific Northwest and also to Germany, to visit her longtime pen pal.
