Debbie Viguié is the New York Times Bestselling author of more than a dozen novels, including the Wicked series and the Crusade series co-authored with Nancy Holder. Much of Debbie’s writing has a dark edge to it, including her retold fairy tales.
In addition to her epic dark fantasy work, Debbie also writes thrillers, including The Psalm 23 Mysteries. A book from that series tops today’s Buffet: I Shall Not Want.
Many of her fans are fledgling authors who ask Debbie for career advice. Her recipe is simple: Keep writing, daily if you can. And once you’ve finished your first book or story, move on to your next project.
Don’t spend your time rewriting the same story for the next fifteen years,” Debbie says. “Most authors never sell their first book, even if they make it big. So take that first story and tuck it away in a drawer somewhere. If you really want to go back and revise it, wait at least 6 months before you do. In the meantime, move on. The ability to write is a muscle which must be exercised just like any other.”
Her “Wicked” series has prompted many readers to wonder whether Debbie is a wiccan or a pagan. Actually, she’s Christian. When Debbie isn’t busy writing she enjoys spending time with her husband, Scott, visiting theme parks. They live in Florida with their cat, Schrödinger.
