Debra Kemp

About me

Ever since seeing the movie Camelot in the mid-70s, Debra A. Kemp has wanted to write her own version of the Arthurian legends. She could hardly disobey when King Arthur himself commanded: “Don’t let it be forgot…” The idea of her main character was conceived that very night. She just wishes she could remember the specific date of that important moment in her life.

Before Debra took up her fountain pen to write however, she earned a nursing degree from Indiana University, married and raised two children. Originally from Highland, Indiana, Debra’s husband’s career in the United States Air Force sent the family to Louisiana, England, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, and the Black Hills of South Dakota. While in England, Debra felt a special connection with the land and especially a few sites that play key roles in her novels and stories.

She currently lives near Indianapolis, IN.
