The Best Is Yet to Come | Inspiration Behind the Book

July 26, 2022

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been a storyteller. It doesn’t take much for my imagination to kick into gear. The idea for The Best Is Yet to Come was inspired by a Sunday morning news program. It must have been around Memorial Day, as an Army general was being interviewed. He talked about the valiant men who served under him with heart and passion, mentioning several who had died in service to our country. And this is what got me.  =He looked straight into the camera and said, “Live a life worthy of their sacrifice.” Right then and there I knew I wanted to write a wounded warrior story, and that’s how The Best Is Yet to Come happened.

I actually thought The Best Is Yet to Come would be my last book and that I would ease into retirement. But then I had a really good idea for another story. Writing is such a big part of who I am that I doubt I’ll ever give it up entirely. The best for me is yet to come it seems, as Wayne and I travel. We bought an RV this summer and adventure awaits us.

    Dear Debbie… I just finished reading, The Best is Yet to Come & I loved it as I do all your books. I can hardly wait for the next one to come out!!!
    It moved me & made me think of all the men & women who serve in the armed forces & how much they sacrificed to keep us safe. I can’t imagine what they experienced with the horrors of war & losing someone very close to you. Also, I hope you do not retire anytime soon because I would be so sad not to be able to read another one of your books. I am looking forward & excited to your next holiday book coming out. God bless you Debbie & thank you for all the beautiful & very moving stories… love, laughter, heartache, drama, faith, bringing God into the books. Sincerely, Sandy ❤️

    Hi Debbie, this is the first time I am writing to you. I’ve enjoyed your books throughout many years. I picked up your latest book, “The Best Is Yet to Come”, and I wanted to tell you how it inspired me. I have forgotten the unsung heroes that sacrificed to give us our freedom. Your book put that on the forefront of my mind again. I have a renewed outlook to help these veterans any way I can. My father earned a Purple Heart in WWII and many in my family also fought in the war. Your book reminded me of how hard it had to be for them mentally and physically to survive. Although, many refused to talk about it. Thank you for this insight.
