PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME FLICKR MAIL -- I very rarely check it. If you need to reach me, please use this contact page.

I write and illustrate children's books for a living, but I also love photography.

My illustrations appear in I'M BORED, a picture book written by Michael Ian Black and published by Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers. The book was chosen by The New York Times for its Notable Children's Books Of 2012 list (see NYTimes book review).

Other upcoming books include projects for Simon & Schuster (including NAKED!), Harpercollins and Random House.

My photography has appeared in The National Post, blogTO, educational textbooks and other publications.

My Flickr user icon was taken from a photo by Beckett Gladney.

    "Debbie is very well known among her friends as She-Who-Takes-Pictures. Her collection of photos will outlive us all, and hopefully will tell others what life was like in the early days of Century 21.

    Yikes, that sounds way too serious. Oh well, I'll submit it and see what Debbie thinks. Feel free to edit, Deb!"
