the summer of 1967, Hollywood actress, Lucinda Baker, appears to have
it all– fame, money, and an all too doting fiancé. Dark traits begin to
emerge from the man she’s pledged to marry, and he threatens her.
Lucinda must now lean on her best friend, celebrity photographer, George
Creston to escape the clutches of the dangerous relationship. Together
they are forced to summon courage, and trust each other in desperate
circumstances. Will they find love in the process or lose everything
they hold dear, including their lives.
Debby Lee was raised in the cozy little town of Toledo, Washington. She has been writing since she was a small child and has written several novels, but never forgets home.
The Northwest Christian Writers Association and Romance Writers of America are two organizations Debby enjoys being a part of. Publications, thus far, include a series of short stories titled The Butterfly Fairytales Collection, and a novella with Barbour Publishing.
As a self-professed nature lover, and an avid listener to 1960s folk music, Debby can’t help but feel like a hippie child who wasn’t born soon enough to attend Woodstock. She wishes she could run barefoot all year long, but often does anyway in grass and on beaches in her hamlet that is the cold and rainy southwest Washington.
During the football season, Debby cheers on the Seattle Seahawks along with legions of other devoted fans. She’s also filled with wanderlust and dreams of visiting Denmark, Italy, and Morocco some day.
- What is your favorite past time, or hobby?I love to read. Some of my favorite authors are John Grisham, Ann Rule, and John Jakes. I love historical fiction, especially historical Inspirational romance, but if I’m desperate or something to read I’ll reach for a road atlas or a telephone book. At least if I peruse a phone book I can come up with character names.
- Do prefer to plan things, or be spontaneous?I like to plan things, to a certain extent, but I like to leave room for spontaneity, as well. I’ve been called impulsive or more than one occasion.
- Who is your hero/heroine?Martin Luther King Jr., Maya Angelou, and Corrie ten Boom are just a few people I admire.
- What is your dream vacation?A three-month trip around the world, beginning in Charleston South Carolina, then up to New York City, then across the Atlantic to Ireland, over to Copenhagen Denmark, south to Nice France and then over to Florence Italy. From there I’d head to Morocco, over to Tahiti and then onto sunny Los Angeles, where I’d walk along the white sandy beaches under the moonlight with the man I love . . . Oh I’m getting off track here. Back to the blog.
- What inspired the title of your story?I love the song California Dreaming by The Mama’s and the Papa’s. It was popular in 1967, when my story took place. I couldn’t use the exact title, so I put a spin on it and came up with Dreaming in California. I thought it would work as a temporary title, but it stuck.
