Deb Beddoe is an author, an editor, and a seasoned marketing creative for companies, ministries, and nonprofit organizations. A literature lover and non-judgmental grammar nerd, she’s loving her current gig as bookseller at a startup indie bookstore.
In Deb’s first book, The Heart of Recovery: How Compassion and Community Offer Hope in the Wake of Addiction (Revell 2019) she and her husband write about his long battle with pill addiction and offer encouragement with practical wisdom to help revive and restore broken people and families on the other side of crisis. Her current work in progress explores living with the lingering effects of complicated trauma.
Across the water from Seattle, Washington, Deb and her now-pastor husband live on the edge of an empty nest as their four adult children head out into the world, leaving them (of course) with a chunky beast of a dog and two geriatric cats.
When she's not reading, writing, or wrangling pets, Deb loves a good adventure, kayaking, crochet, cooking, and attempts at growing things. Online, you'll find her thinking aloud about what’s pressing on her soul: spiritual disciplines, social justice, her childhood as a missionary kid, costume dramas, and of course, books. She’s also got an Instagram space just for writers: @the_well_writer where she posts about nourishing creativity.
