Author Biography

Following a career of over thirty years in the British Army, Deb and her husband moved to Cyprus to become weather refugees.

She’s written children's books about Jason the penguin and Barry the reindeer and adult books about aliens, the afterlife, soldiers, and netball players.
The first book in the latest series 'Unlikely Soldiers' is set in nineteen seventies Britain. The second covers the early eighties and includes the Falklands War, service in Northern Ireland and (the former) West Germany. 'Friends and Revenge' is the third in the series, and takes a sinister turn of events.

'Court Out (A Netball Girls' Drama)' is Deb's latest book. Using netball as an escape from her miserable home life, Marsha Lawson is desperate to keep the past buried and to forge a brighter future. But she’s not the only one with secrets. When two players want revenge, a Tsunami of emotions is released leaving destruction in its wake. As the wave starts spreading throughout the team, can Marsha and the others escape its deadly grasp, or will their emotional baggage pull them under, with devastating consequences for their families and team-mates? '

Deb spends her time writing, avoiding housework and playing tour guide. She occasionally blogs about her books and (tongue in cheek) from Donut the dog's point of view. She also tries - and mostly fails - to keep the pounds off.

Beyond Life (The Afterlife Series Book 2) by Deb McEwan is a suspenseful fiction story with a fresh take on the afterlife. What really happens when we die? Beyond Life is the second book in The Afterlife Series and takes us deeper into the lives and deaths of the characters from McEwan's first novel, Beyond Death. When Claire Sylvester dies, she is devastated. She takes some time to come to terms with her death and the mysterious world she now inhabits. But she can't forget that her stepsister's kidnapper is still lurking around near her friends and family. Claire isn't sure how to help her friends and family from her position in the afterlife, but if she can discover her unique talents, she just might be able to send them some much needed help. And learn to find peace with her new role in the battle of good versus evil.

Beyond Life is an incredibly humorous story about the afterlife. The characters are extremely realistic and engaging. McEwan did a wonderful job of creating real characters that I fell in love with, cried with, and laughed with like they were real people. I can't wait to see what happens to Claire and her friends in future installments. Beyond Life is funny, interesting, thought provoking and a little dark and scary, which makes it a truly fantastic read. McEwan writes with an excellent sensitivity to her characters and readers. McEwan has an incredible imagination and sense of humor that takes this story to the next level and won't disappoint those who pick it up.
