I'm fascinated by the many talented authors that the internet highway allows us to meet.
Here's another great writer whom I'm privileged to know from American Christian Fiction Writers. She also has a book coming out soon by Prism Book Group (my publisher) meet Deborah Piccurelli.
After years of reading books and watching movies with an element of romance, Deborah M. Piccurelli’s desire to write romance novels came naturally. She is active in her church and is an advocate for sanctity of life. Deborah is the author of two novels, a novella and several cause-related newspaper articles. She is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers, and the New Jersey Society of Christian Writers. As one of the winners in a contest by The Christian Authors Show, details of Deborah’s writing journey can be found in the 2013-2014 edition of the book, 50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading. Deborah lives in New Jersey with her husband and their two sons.
"Deborah M. Piccurelli is passionate about the Lord, family, and creating powerful prose." From her website: www.deborahmpiccurelli.com
Investigative journalist, Amber Blake, is a little person bent on payback for the death of her average-sized twin sister. Enlisted by her former partner and estranged husband, Evan, she poses as a counselor in an abortion clinic to expose the doctor responsible for fetal harvesting. As a Christian, she struggles with concealing her beliefs to maintain her cover, while the doctor’s romantic overtures tumble her stomach. Amber agrees to date him for the sake of the story . . . but nothing prepares her for what’s behind a mysterious door in his office.
Amazon review- Hush Little Baby
A suspenseful book that gripped me from the start.

"She would be working for her sister's killer." (from "Hush Little Baby" by Deborah Piccurelli)
The first sentence in any story is so important. It either grabs the reader's attention, or loses the reader immediately. I couldn't help but be drawn in by this sentence. Why would she want to work for a murderer, especially one who killed her sister? Isn't that risky? Already, I had questions. I HAD to keep reading!
Amber Blake, a little person and investigative reporter, goes undercover to work as a counselor in an abortion clinic. Something fishy is going on and she's determined to stick it out and discover what's not right! Not only does she face danger, but ultimately, she faces having to make difficult choices each day because of her faith and beliefs in the sanctity of life.
Deborah Piccurelli weaves romance, intrigue, adventure, danger, and even humor in this exciting tale of suspense. She expertly changes point of view throughout the book, so that we learn how her estranged husband feels during all of this. Each time I turned a page, I wanted to shout at Amber, "Don't do that!" or "Why don't you tell him?!"
What's not evident by reading the back cover, is that there are other issues that Amber needs to deal with; issues that are clouding her judgment, and forcing her to make important life choices; there is a parallel between Amber's undercover job and Amber's real life.
The story flows effortlessly and quickly. There are surprises and twists along the way, but Deb always comes back to unraveling the main thread. I read this book in a weekend, and was completely enthralled!
