The genre I am most drawn to is the personal essay. I have contributed several of these to The Globe and Mail. My favourite is “The Love That Dared Wag Its Tail,” which appears again on this website. Globe readers posted enthusiastic comments about it online, including the one below:

“A wonderful story that demonstrates for me the special place that some dogs have in the life of a family.”

And if you’ll forgive me for tooting my own horn, here’s more praise:

“Deb, this is lovely! Congrats.”
—Andrew Westoll, author of the award-winning The Chimps of Fauna Sanctuary

“Congrats! Nicely done. I’ll tweet about it.”
—Ania Szado, author of Studio St.-Ex

In addition to publishing personal essays, I have reported for The Globe and Mail on subjects ranging from why celebrities and wealthy women shoplift to trends in restaurant design. I have also written for the National Post, Quill & Quire, and CBC Infoculture, where I served as the Books Editor from 1999 to 2001.
