Hello. I'm Deborah. By day I come up with ideas for TV shows at CPL Productions, by night I write novels.
I love television. I love books.
I was born and bred in Teesside in the North-East of England. Now, I live in London with my husband and daughter.
I read English at Newnham College, Cambridge and after a summer tour managing Footlights, began my first job in TV on The Big Breakfast. I've created various shows (Grow Your Own Drugs, Look Me In The Eye) but I'm proudest of the work I'm doing now. Our multi award-winning Channel 4 series Old People's Home For 4 Year Olds has changed the face of elderly care in the UK and we're hoping that our latest format, The Restaurant That Makes Mistakes, will change the lives of the thousands of people living and working with dementia.
In 2016 my first novel MY HUSBAND'S SON was published and went on to become a bestseller. My next thriller THE DANGEROUS KIND will be published in hardback in 2019.
I'd love to hear from you, so get in touch.
