Debbie Decker has also been a member of the California Dreamin’ Committee from the beginning. This year she is the Co-Chair for Editor and Agents and is working on the book signing event. She is the author of several books set in small towns. She says, “Home is where my story starts. There is nothing more important than my family and friends. That’s why I write love stories… all kinds of love. I look at my life and appreciate how blessed I’ve been with amazing relationships. That’s another thing you’ll find in my stories – family and friends you can count on when the going gets tough.
After all, LOVE is what makes the world go ‘round.”
