Deborah Sherman is a writer, photographer, art-nut, cat-freak, gardener, nature-lover, DIY-enthusiast, techie, and Jane-of-all-trades from the great city of Oakland, California. She received her MFA in Creative Writing from Mills College where her thesis garnered the Amanda Davis Thesis in Fiction Prize Honorable Mention.

She, her husband, and their two bewildered cats recently transplanted to the coastal community of Delray Beach, Florida. In addition to working on completing her short story collection The Middle Ages, Deborah is currently blogging about her family’s transition from Oakland’s big-city-vibe to the tourist-retiree-scene of Delray Beach on her latest project, Southeast by Northwest.
