Deborah Auten

Narwhal has been fortunate to work on some of the luminous and original fiction of architect, writer, and photographer Deborah Auten. You can read an excerpt from one of those works-in-progress, “the Evie book,” on her website.

One of Deborah’s stories (writing as Magdalena Jones) will be appearing in a “cozy noir” anthology scheduled to come out at the end of 2014. (If you’re wondering what a “cozy noir” is, it refers to a lighter-toned mystery in a village setting with an amateur sleuth and other characters you’d enjoy visiting.)

A Writers Group CompanionDeborah is also the author of A Writers Group Companion: A Twelvemonth of Prompts and Recipes, a charming, humorous, and beautifully designed book that takes a series of eccentric monthly holidays (such as January’s Thesaurus Day) and turns them into the inspiration for recipes and writing prompts. A Writers Group Companion is available in both print and Kindle editions.
