Meet Author Deborah Swenson

Deborah Swenson is an award-winning author of Till My Last Breath, Book One in the Desert Hills Trilogy, and the newly released (2024) Till My Last Day, Book Two in the Desert Hills Trilogy.

She was New England born, Northwest raised, and is at home writing from an island in the Pacific Northwest. Her love of writing Western fiction began years ago, spurred on by memories of watching the wonderful classic Western movies with her Dad. When she writes, the stories seem to evolve naturally, like a movie playing out in her mind, allowing her to fall in love with her characters.

She was educated at local universities with undergraduate and graduate degrees in nursing and as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner specializing in high-risk obstetrics. She had a lengthy and rewarding career that afforded her opportunities to write and publish nursing texts and articles and serve on an editorial advisory board for a nurse practitioner magazine.

Deborah Swenson, Award-Winning Author

Deborah has taken college writing courses and screenwriting classes, along with attending various conferences and writing workshops. It is through the encouragement of a dear friend that her dream of writing and being published has become a reality.

What keeps her excited about writing is her Faith, Family, and Friends.

When she’s not writing, she enjoys spinning fiber, quilting, photography, and reading. But most definitely, sitting by a fire with a hot cup of tea and reading a great Western romance completes her day.
