More About the Author

Internationally published author and poet, I'm now a displaced Southerner from northwest Florida. Kansas City, Missouri is currently my home with my husband and three dogs.
I love to write but hate chasing publishers and editors. The first one tied my hands for a year with a promise and a smile. So in retaliation, my husband and I began Charlie Dawg Press and are publishing for the general market. It's great fun; we're able to help other good authors get their work formatted, edited and into print. We're an independent press with six authors, currently.

All my books and contributions to anthologies are available on Amazon.com in print and Kindle e book. Visit my website at DebKemper.com.
I love a good story!

Deb Kemper's Mallory Ridge drew me in and made me feel like part of the family protrayed in this novel. Kemper's artful craft kept me turning pages well into the night. A delightful read for romance readers, horse lovers, and dog devotees. Don't miss the trip to Mallory Ridge.God's Little Miracle Book II

Rarely do I read the romance genre. Usually the books are sappy and the love too easy. Mallory Ridge is REAL. I could see this happening in real life. Using believable characters and realistic settings, I fell into this story with abandon, reading late into the night just to finish. Deb Kemper paints a picture I am able to place into my head of her main characters, what motivates them, and how they handle the trouble they face. Life is not easy, but life can be good is the message I took away. The faith they share is real and honest. The pain touched my heart as I hurt with the wife as she lost her husband and had to face a world not knowing what was next. Dating, at 50? Oh My!!! It took courage, the counsel of friends, and becoming vulnerable to continue, but the main character did. I loved her persistence, her willingness to love again, and her trust in herself as she stepped into the unknown. The Christian perspective is not overly unbearable as in some books I just plain put down. Hate preachiness!!! I am glad I spent the time to fall into Deb's world, created from her heart and mind, for an audience who loves to read.

A chance meeting of 2 young adults turns into a mature love as the 2 have another chance meeting. This book is enjoyable to read, but it is an unashamedly Christian book. Not all of its theology will fit the reader's preference, but it does make for a lovely story.

I have no problems with Christian Romance at all. I have to be honest that there have been some really great Christian Romances yet this one did not hit that mark for me. I hate when I read a story and the word is so apparent that it takes away from story. I just felt as though this book forgot that there was a story somewhere within the book.

In truth the book ended as if the characters lives never saw any type of discomfort, or any of the challenges that we normally face in life. I am sorry I just did not like the book or the message.

I thoroughly enjoyed Deb Kemper's Mallory Ridge. It was such a clean, Christian romance book. I fell in love with all of the characters. I felt like I knew them. It was a hard book to put down and I was so sad when it ended. I would hope the author would make this a series. I feel like she could write more books using the other characters. I am going to recommend this book to all my friends.

Great read! It's very well written and I was drawn completely in and didn't want to put it down. Be warned though - this is a Christian romance and it is very in your face with the message of God's love. If that kind of stuff makes you uncomfortable, you don't need to consider this book - you need to consider the condition of your heart. The heroin is a very strong Christian woman who I have to admit was a little too good to be true sometimes.

The only thing I found a little disappointing was the fact that even though the pre-marital sexual tension was present on several occasions, the joy and excitement of the relationship finally being consummated (after marriage, of course) was completely ignored. I was by no means looking for a graphic depiction of this, but it would have been nice to have gotten a glimpse of the reward and release felt by the characters.

The only other thing I would like to add is that even though this book was not extremely long, it felt more like a saga than a novel. The story didn't just end when the guy got the girl, like so many do. It continued and had me wondering where it would wind up.

I've read my share of Christian romances and most seem boiler-plated and formulaic. Mallory Ridge is far from either of those descriptors. It is a love story in the strictest sense of the term...not only the love found between a man and a woman, but Redeeming Love as well. The life struggles portrayed are far from fiction; any number of us have experienced hurt, betrayal, rejection, abuse, unrequited love, and more, and Kemper presented these in situations that seem real and believable. Woven throughout the story is strong faith, a faith so strong that it sometimes seems impossible or improbable. However, this is the strong faith in a God that can do immeasurably more than we can hope or imagine that I believe most Christ-followers strive to achieve. In that sense, the story is extremely inspirational, lending to self-examination of our own faith journeys. This is Kemper's first novel, and she will most certainly continue to hone her craft in subsequent works.

First of all, Mallory Ridge is a beautiful love story. As I read it, I was reminded of a statement John Eldredge made in his book The Sacred Romance. He talks of Helen of Troy and how two kingdoms went to war to determine who would have her. John goes on to say,'Few have ever felt so pursued. Sometimes we wonder if we've even been noticed'(pg.83).

Will displays such love for Caroline in Mallory Ridge. He says she has, 'No clue the lengths I'd go to have you . . . I'd do anything for you.' Nor did she have any idea what patience he exerted to win over her hesitant heart.

Secondly, I see Mallory Ridge as a story of second chances. Of new beginnings. Its characters dared to step out and love again despite previous wounds and scars. They faced that next challenge. They moved on.
