Deborah Greene grew up, as, what’s now referred to as a “third culture kid”, moving with her family to port cities and overseas. This lifestyle prepared her well for what she calls a “career of constant curiosity” as a museum curator.
Years of exploring archives and listening to family histories inspire her to write about people and places. The Boundary Country series is Deborah’s first step into fiction and reflects her love for the landscapes and legacies of BC and Washington’s central interiors and the Pacific Rim.
She continues to write storylines for museum exhibits and grants for nonprofits. A Royal Roads University graduate with an M.A. Deborah (Griffiths) published The Grant Seeker’s Helper in 2013. She’s won a number of professional awards including a Vancouver Children’s Literature Roundtable Finalist for Heather’s Amazing Discovery a children’s non-fiction book about fossil exploration and discovery.
In 2016, the British Columbia Historical Federation presented her and co-authors Christine Dickinson, Judy Hagen and Catherine Siba, with a Lieutenant Governor’s Historic Writing Finalist Award for Watershed Moments-A Pictorial History of Courtenay and District published by Harbour Publishing in 2015.
