About Deborah Dobbs

Deborah Dobbs grew up in Texas. Throughout her life, she has worked as a delivery van driver, a swanky night club hostess, a substitute teacher, a college professor, and an espresso business owner. She started her career as a victim advocate in 1996. 

Deborah's mother lured her into the emotionally grueling work of victim advocacy. As an advocate, Deborah's job included responding to murder, suicide, and traffic fatality scenes. Countless times, she returned home with the smell of death on her clothes and in her sinuses. 

Her career has provided her with unique views of the judicial system, patterns of violent offenders, and the experiences of their victims. 

Writing about work began as a coping mechanism. Later, it evolved into novels that invite readers into a victim advocate's world. The stories are realistic, but to protect the good guys, they are indeed fiction. 

Deborah lives in Allen, Texas with her husband, daughter, a murderous cat named Sicario.
