Debrah Martin

Debbie Martin picDebrah Martin describes herself as the ultimate multi-tasker.
‘Sometimes I even have to remind myself who I am for the day,’ she admits.
That’s because she writes under three different pen names and in three very different genres. As Debrah Martin she writes literary fiction. Falling Awake is a dream-like tale where truth IS stranger than fiction; Chained Melodies is the extraordinary story of how two men find not just courage, but self-belief and the true nature of love. She also plots fast-paced and compelling thrillers as D.B. Martin, with the first in the Patchwork trilogy, Patchwork Man, which was awarded a B.R.A.G. Medallion. The second in the series, Patchwork People,  twists the knife even further. Patchwork Pieces, the final part of the trilogy, was released in 2016 to even more critical acclaim.
And not to be overlooked is her YA teen detective series, penned as Lily Stuart – THE teen detective. WEBS, MAGPIES are available, and the third in the sequence GONE is due for publication in 2016.
So why not stick to just one name and one genre?
‘Variety is the spice of life,’ she replies. ‘And I have all these ideas – they have to come out somehow!’
Debrah’s past careers have spanned two businesses, teaching, running business networking for the University of Winchester and social event management. She now makes do with chairing the Wantage (not just Betjeman) Literary Festival in her hometown when she’s not writing. She also has two daughters and a dog to organise.
‘See – more multi-tasking!’
