More About the Author

Through both words and deeds, Debbie Macomber inspires women from all walks of life to realise their dreams.

She overcame the obstacles in her own life to become one of the world's most popular writers. She encourages women to achieve the goals that burn in their hearts as fiercely as the desire to become a bestselling novelist did in her own.

When Debbie first decided to write a novel, people called her a hopeless dreamer. She had only a high school degree and was dyslexic. She was also the very young mother of four active children. No one believed she had what it took to write a book--except Debbie. She eventually saved enough money to rent an old typewriter, and every night when the children were asleep, she would sit down to write.

She wrote--for years. But each time she completed a story and mailed it off to a publisher, the manuscript was returned, stamped "rejected." As tough as it was to keep her spirits alive, Debbie never gave up. Five long years and thousands of pages later, she received a letter in the afternoon mail. The letter was from Silhouette Books--and they wanted to buy her story. Her first novel, Heartsong, was published as a Silhouette in 1984, and it became the first romance novel ever to be reviewed in Publishers Weekly.

Today, Debbie is the internationally acclaimed author of more than 100 novels and has sold over 60 millions copies. Popular around the globe, she receives approximately three thousand letters from readers every month. And she responds personally to each one.

In lectures around the country, Debbie encourages women to "exercise the success muscle." She also offers advice on how to achieve success in seeking or changing a career, building family relationships, forming healthy relationships and more.

Like her heartwarming novels, Debbie's inspirational speeches are always filled with laughter and love. She cares deeply about the women she touches with her writing, and she continues to mentor people around the country. She also volunteers her considerable talents to help raise much-needed funds for battered-women's shelters, literacy and medical research.

She lives with her husband in Port Orchard, Washington. Their children are grown and she is a proud grandmother.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sweet and simple story you will love... 6 Oct 2003
By Huntress Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Jenna Campbell has had enough of unrequited love. She gives up on a relationship with her boss and answers an ad for mail order brides in Alaska. On the way to meet her fiance, she meets a man who happens to hate his guts, Reid Jamison. Learning who she is and why Jenna is going to Alaska makes Reid determined to convince her that this is not a good idea.
Jenna does not want to listen at first, but when she is snowbound with Reid, she becomes a captive audience. Between the eccentrics, grizzly bears, and an interfering mother, Jenna is definitely getting more than she bargained for when she left behind the safe urban life.
***** One thing is certain when you pick up a Debbie Macomber book, you are going to find a sweet story that will encourage you about the sheer niceness that exists in life. Sweet and simple, this book uses well loved standards to create a charming story. Ms. Macomber once more proves that you can tell a good story without excess sensuality. *****

3.0 out of 5 stars Quick reading but lacks energy 22 Dec 2004
By C. Cunningham - Published on Amazon.com
"The Snow Bride" is the full-length version of the short story by the same name which first appeared in _On A Snowy Night_. The premise is worth exploring, a young, beautiful executive assistant leaves the comfort of her Los Angeles home and heads to Alaska to meet the man she has been corresponding with over the Internet for the past several months. She learns, through a series of coincidences, that he is not the person he appeared to be and unexpectedly falls in love with a brash, rugged pilot. All in all, the characters are sweet and delightful, (the male lead is very funny!) but their tale makes a better short story than novel.

One plus is that Macomber writes wonderful romances without all the explicit language an graphic content that usually appears in this genre. Her characters and dialogue are usually fun, snappy and at times, very humurous (a quality not lost in main character Reid). Unfortunately, this story falls very flat. It is excruciatingly predictable and lackluster; having lost its zeal after the first two chapters. I like how one reviewer described it -- "cute". That about sums it up. It was dragging miserably, but still maintained its "cuteness" and humor.

I say buy a used copy or preuse a library copy on a day when you're looking to fill some time with a quick read.

3 and 1/2 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Healthy Dose of Holiday Cheer 20 Dec 2003
By Sheri Melnick - Published on Amazon.com
Prolific romance author Debbie Macomber brings readers a new Christmas tale, complete with a trip to snowy Alaska. Tired of being taken for granted by her boss and love interest, Brad Fulton, Jenna Campbell throws caution to the wind and travels to Alaska to meet her on-line pen pal Dalton Gray. But when her flight lands in Fairbanks, and Dalton isn't there as planned, her surly seatmate, Reid Jamison, agrees to take her to Beesley, Dalton's hometown, until he discovers that Dalton is the man she is meeting.
Because Dalton jilted Reid's sister Lucy, Reid "kidnaps" a furious Jenna and takes her to his home in Snowbound.
Humor and romance ensue as Reid and Jenna find themselves fighting an unlikely attraction between this burly pipeline worker and a sunny California girl, as a snowstorm forces them to maintain an air of civility in Reid's humble cabin. Quirky old-timers Palmer and Addy add comic relief to this fluffy Christmas confection, especially when Brad, Dalton, and Jenna's often married mother, Chloe, all show up in Snowbound. Whether one is snowbound or not, Ms. Macomber's latest provides welcome holiday cheer, away from the hustle and bustle.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Worth The Hardcover Price 9 Oct 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
As an avid reader of most romance, and a fan of this author, this story was a disapointment. I found the story to move extremely slow and at times was just plain boring. I agree with another reviewer that all romance does not have to have strong sensuality, but the entertainment value still needs to be there. This book didn't do it for me, and was no where near worth $14.95.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute 7 Oct 2004
By Tonya Speelman - Published on Amazon.com
This book was very cute. That is about the word for it. No serious plot and you can guess from the beginning what will happen. None the less cute and an enjoyable afternoon read!
