ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Debrah Martin writes under three different pen names and in three very different genres. She plots fast-paced and compelling thrillers as D.B. Martin, with the first in the Patchwork trilogy, Patchwork Man, having been recently awarded a coveted B.R.A.G. Medallion. The explosive conclusion to the series, Patchwork Pieces, was released on 13th April 2015. As Debrah Martin she writes literary fiction, where often the truth IS stranger than fiction, and two new titles are due to be released in 2015/16. And not to be overlooked is her YA teen detective series, penned as Lily Stuart – THE teen detective. Irreverent, blunt, funny and vulnerable. Webs is the first in the series, with Magpies released in Summer 2015.
So why not stick to just one name and one genre?
‘Variety is the spice of life,’ she says. ‘And I continually have all these new ideas – they have to come out somehow!’
Debrah’s past careers have spanned two businesses, teaching, running business networking for the University of Winchester (UK) and social event management. She chaired the Wantage (not just Betjeman) Literary Festival in 2014 and also mentors new writers.

An extraordinary story of courage, self-belief and the true nature of love
when courage isn't about facing death, it's about facing life - and life isn't always conventional...
“Chaos is about rejecting all that you have learnt, chaos is about being yourself.” Emile M. Cioran
If chaos theory applied to anyone, it’s Will and Tom. Best friends since childhood, life takes very different courses for them until they’re thrown back together in the middle of their own individual chaos. Surviving the terrors of war in Northern Ireland and the heartbreak of childlessness and a broken marriage, Tom learns that bravery isn’t about daring death, it’s about facing life. For Will, it’s about being yourself ”" or in his case, herself, as he starts an unusual journey towards being just that; the woman, Billie.
Chained Melodies is the extraordinary story of how two men find not just courage, but self-belief and the true nature of love.
"Touching and almost heart-breaking, this is a novel to tickle your heart strings."
“...breath-taking and intriguing...”
“...a "must read" novel.'”
"...quite beautiful, with a certain poetry in the tone."
