Deborah is the North Vancouver BC Federation Chair.

Deborah was born in Fort Churchill, of the northern-most areas of the prairie provinces of Canada and the youngest of five in a military family. I was a shy and withdrawn young girl and can remember spending a lot of time alone. I did not make friends easily when I was young, I guess because I was so timid and insecure. When I became a teenager, (around 14 or so), I discovered that I had the ability to make things rhyme and to write poems. So began my career as a poet. The discovery of self, the unravelling of emotion...the re-qualifying of negatives around me, these things all seemed to come so naturally to me, like wearing a second skin.

I am currently in the process of finishing my first book of poetry, and it will be ready for publication in the near future. Tribute To Love (On The Wings Of Spirit), is a book filled with Love and encouragement - mercy and comfort for those who hurt.

I wish all who read my words joy, peace and above all, a wealth of Love... within and without.
