Single Girl Summer is her first novel and it’s more than just a story of sophisticated friends having fun in the big city. Single Girl Summer is a celebration of women – yes, their strengths and weaknesses but more than that, their ability to pull themselves up by their designer bootstraps.

Both the iconic movie, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and the hit TV show, Sex in the City, were an inspiration for Deanna when writing Single Girl Summer. She loved the independent, risk taking complexity of the main characters. The leading characters in SGS embody the same spirit as Holly Gollightly and Carrie Bradshaw, but add yet another, all so important element – how their parents helped shape them into the women they are today. Deanna has a keen understanding of how every woman needs a balance of family, friendship, and love in their lives.
