Meet Author Debbie Mason
GROWING UP I spent more time reading than playing with friends. Which might explain why I didn’t have many of them. Once I’d read every book I was allowed to (and some I wasn’t) I decided to write my own stories. I liked mine better. The characters in my books did and said exactly what I wanted them to.
A SMALL RAILROAD TOWN was not my idea of teenage paradise. But I can forgive my dad for moving the family there, because he was the one who introduced me to my future husband, a handsome Italian boy whom Dad said, ” looks a lot like Rocky, only taller.” Two years later, I married that Italian boy. We eventually had three amazing children, who hardly ever did as they were told. But that was okay, because the children in my stories did.
MY DREAM of becoming a published author took a backseat to raising my children and running several businesses with my husband. In 2007, we sold the businesses and our youngest graduated from high school, giving me time to focus on my writing. I joined two romance writing groups and began letting my characters do and say what they wanted to.
DREAMS DON’T HAVE AN EXPIRATION DATE and six manuscripts and an agent later, writing as Debbie Mazzuca, my debut book, LORD OF THE ISLES, was published in 2010 by Kensington Books. I wrote two more historical paranormals for Kensington, garnering nominations for best paranormal from the Golden Leaf, Romance Reviews, and a Romantic Times Reviewer’s Choice nomination, as well as a Holt Medallion Medal of Honor.
A NEW CHAPTER BEGINS as I’m now writing a contemporary romance series set in the fun-filled fictional town of Christmas, Colorado. My characters make me laugh and cry and, like me, they get their happy-ever-after. After 32 years of marriage my husband is still the man of my dreams. And those amazing children of mine turned out even more incredible than I ever could have hoped for. The arrival of our adorable grandbaby last year has made our lives complete. But I wouldn’t say no to a dozen more–babies or books.
Back Cover Blurb:
It will take a Christmas miracle to melt her heart.
Resort developer Madison Lane is about to lose the one thing she loves most in the world—her job. Dubbed “The Grinch Who Killed Christmas,” Madison spoiled a deal that would turn quaint Christmas, Colorado, into a tourist’s winter wonderland. Now the citizens want her fired but the company gives her one last chance, sending Madison to the small town to restore the holiday cheer.
For Sheriff Gage McBride, no hotshot executive from New York City is going to destroy the dreams of the people he loves. But one look at this beautiful woman and it’s his heart that may be broken. In just a few days, Madison causes more trouble than he’s had to deal with all year. He can’t decide if she’s naughty or nice, but one thing is for certain—Christmas will never be the same again…
