WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE!
Anyone who knows me, knows of my love of the beach - any beach, and sea shells. To me, these two things bring peace to my soul in ways I can't explain. I am endlessly fascinated by the movement of water on sand, broad horizons where water meets the sky, and the intricate, unbelievable beauty of sea shells - nature's jewels tossed up from the depths for us to marvel at. That's why I chose the photo you see on the left. It tells you a little about me, what moves me, and what inspires me.
My name is Debbie McClure, and I’m the author of paranormal romance/murder mystery and bio-historical romance novels and visual artist. Following a ten year career in real estate and mortgage sales, I decided to follow my passion of writing full time and exploring the world of acrylic painting – never let anyone tell you it’s too late. Before that, I worked for twenty plus years as a medical secretary while raising my two children. Then, I met the love of my life, and began the adventure of blending our two families of five combined children. Now, we boast a growing family that includes incredible children and grandchildren.
My husband and I loved living in the small lakeside resort town of Grand Bend, Ontario, Canada, but we recently made the momentous decision to move back to my home town of London, Ontario.
Of course there's more to art than meets the eye, and I've discovered exciting new ways of connecting with others through my writing and artwork. When interviewing another artist, I was told that "art is conversation", and I fell in love with that saying. It's now my mantra, since for me it's always about the connections and conversations we foster in life that really matter.
In addition, I continue to pen interviews with other writers from around the globe for a third party blog, You Read It Here First. What a wonderful chance to connect with other writers and shine a spotlight on them and their work!
I look forward to writing more books and creating more artwork that I hope others will enjoy. If you're visiting this page for the first time, I encourage you to take a few moments to view the different tabs. If you like what you see, consider sharing this site with your circles.
