Deb Kastner

Author Bio:

~~Love Courageously~~

The only thing that beats a romantic happily-ever-after ending is a happily-ever-after ending in Christ. Award-winning author Deb Kastner strives to create a cord of three strands between the hero, the heroine, and the Savior. Writing contemporary western romances, Deb’s books contain sigh-worthy heroes and strong heroines facing obstacles that draw them closer to each other and the Lord.

Deb first became aware of God’s saving grace in high school, but it wasn’t until college that she started to live her faith fully. She was an active participant in several Christian college organizations, including a Christian show choir called Master Peace.

Over the years, Deb has been involved in everything from teaching Sunday school to leading women’s Bible studies. Her primary and favorite church ministry is as a member of the choir. Go altos!

Deb had a penchant for writing fiction as early as elementary school, where her fifth-grade teacher embarrassed her by reading her twenty-page “short” story aloud to the class. After many years and dozens of articles for national parenting magazines and Sunday school publications, her husband finally challenged her to write what she loved to read—romance. She still remembers the sheer terror of sitting outside the Red Lobster where her local RWA chapter met, terrified they would take one look at her and realize she was a fraud. Instead, she found a group of likeminded writers who encouraged her toward publication. Less than two years later, editor Karen Ball, then of Multnomah, offered Deb a contract on her first novel.

She lives in Colorado with her husband, two of her three grown daughters (the middle one flew the coop!), two wonderful grandchildren and a pack of dogs. Full house! Spoiling her grandchildren is her favorite hobby, but she also enjoys movies, music, reading and musical theater.
