Bennet Pomerantz talks to media guests on the Betty Award winning ANYTHING GOES. His guest tonight is author Debra Druzy


a mom  who writes sweet ’n spicy contemporary romantic fiction in between running errands and doing household chores. With her terrible penmanship, writing a novel was never Debra’s lifelong dream. However, as a little girl she loved playing with her mother’s old typewriter, and she did pretty good in typing class in high school. When she grew up, she got a job in NYC where she did a lot of typing and spent a lot of hours commuting via the Long Island Railroad. To pass the time, she read a lot of books. All sorts of books. Syfy. Horror. Women’s Fiction.


She quickly realized Romance was her favorite—the steamier the better. All that reading gave her the big idea to write her own story, putting her overactive imagination and suspicious mind to work, playing out the possibilities of what-ifs.


So… she came home from work one day, sat in front a blank document on her computer, and attempted her first novel. It was awful but that didn’t stop her. In 2011, she joined the RWA and LIRW, where she met like-minded writers at all levels of experience. At the LIRW Annual Luncheon in May 2014, Debra pitched SLEEPING WITH SANTA to the Editor-in-Chief of The Wild Rose Press, and a few months later was offered a contract; the book released in time for Christmas 2014.


Her second story, DARE ME, a Valentine’s day novella, will be out February 1, 2016, and is available now for pre-order on Amazon and other online bookstores.
