I have always had a passion for writing, ever since I was 6 and wrote my own version of Little Red Riding Hood and had my Mum staple it together as a ‘book’ with wrapping paper as the cover. However, I only recently found a way to make my work available for others to read, and the feedback and support has been amazing 🙂

   On my site you will find all my smaller writing projects as well as info and links to buy my books at the bottom of this page. You can also sign up to my mailing list by sending a quick ‘hello’ or a limerick (if you’re feeling brave) to me at debbieioannaauthor@gmail.com

   I cover all genres, I don’t write to a specific audience. I’ve written novels, short stories, blogs and poetry. I am so proud of my books, ‘Abberton House’ and ‘The Runaway Girl’. They are available to purchase on Kindle and paperback on Amazon. Reviews are so important to indie authors like myself so please, please, please take a few minutes to review all books that you read on Amazon.

   I have just turned 30 and life is beginning to get very exciting. I am starting a lot of different journeys which I am sure I will find time to write about in one of my very random blogs….

   As well as writing when I can, I manage to work and study part time towards a University degree. Not forgetting my most important (and favourite) job of all, raising my beautiful daughter.

   I do hope you enjoy what I write and are able to feedback your thoughts. Even if it is something trivial such as a grammatical or spelling error, it is best that I know!

   Lots of love..

  1. Hi Debbie
    I’ve just started following your site and read some of your lovely stories, I especially liked Buttons and Lions. I would like to publish a novel someday and have already started writing one but feel I need to gain more experience in story writing. I thought about setting up a blog and publishing some of my short stories to get some feedback but I was worried about copyright, would my stories be covered if they are published in a blog? Could someone steal them and publish them as their own?
    Did you get any advice on this before you published your work? If so, could you help me? I really would like to set up a blog and get some good feedback on my writing.
    Best wishes

    1. Hi there 🙂 thank you for taking the time to read my work!

      Regarding copyright I didn’t seek any advice I just started to post anything I wrote and wanted to share. I trust that everything is dated when I share it so have that to back up that it is my work and everything is written in a notebook first showing rough drafts and where ideas came from etc.

      I recommend using WordPress, and let me know when you do start posting so I can follow you too 😊

      Some of my writing is from uni assignments. My blogs are just random rants haha

      1. Thank you Debbie, I’ll keep a note of all my stores and dates just in case. I’d hate for my work to get stolen and used by another person.

        I’ll let you know when I get set up, thank you once again for your advice.

        Best wishes


      2. I’ve never heard of it happening. Some of work may be inspired by the work of another but direct copying or stealing I’ve not come across. Maybe I’m far too trusting when posting my own work lol

        Best of luck 😊

      3. Thank you Debbie, I think I may be a bit paranoid! I’ve been looking at other writing blogs and they have all posted their short stories so it looks safe enough.
        It’s really exciting and I’ve just started another short story so this may be the first to go on my new blog when I set it up.
        Many thanks

      1. Hi Su
        Thank you for your comments, I shall indeed look out for your blog and other writers on WordPress. I am just finding my feet at the moment and it is a bit daunting but exciting at the same time.

        I am currently looking to join a writing or book group in Manchester which is near to where I live but not having much luck yet.

        Best wishes
