A Personal Note

A special hello to you, if you are one of my many fans who’ve been asking for more, and wondering where I’ve been. Welcome to my new site – really new, now that I’ve changed back ends and have a plan in place to get out and about on the net this year.

Some big life changes kept me offline and not writing for a time, but I’m back at it again. I’m in the final stretch with the long-awaited followup to MainlineSplintegrate is not a sequel per se, but it does take place in the same milieu a couple years later, and features some of the persons you got to know in the first book.

If you want to keep up on what I’m doing, I welcome you to subscribe to my blog feed by clicking the RSS button in the header of this page.

Author Deborah Teramis Christian

Teramis wrote her first book at age 9, but like all good literary lizards has taken her time charging upon the market. Finally in a situation where she can write full time, she is becoming the Dragon, Unleashed, or a close facsimile thereof. Roar, said the saur.
