DEBORAH CAY WILDING
Deborah Cay Wilding is the First Place winner of the Daphne du Maurier Award of Excellence.
Deborah can't remember when she hasn't been writing--beginning with winning her first short story award in sixth grade.
After studying literature and earning graduate degrees in library science and communication she worked in corporate communications, writing numerous articles on historic preservation and the environment.
"When I'm not writing, I spend all my time outdoors--horseback riding, gardening, and hiking with my dogs."
