A Wisconsin native, Darcie Czajkowski has resided in San Diego, California since she was eighteen. From an early age, she loved books and spent many a childhood-day perusing the bookshelves at her local library, always bringing home the maximum amount of books allowed (forty). While currently an attorney by day, her fascination with relationships - be it romantic, familial, or friendship - has led her to write women's fiction at every chance she gets. When she is not reading or writing, she can be found in the kitchen, cooking for friends and family, or traveling the world.

Deb Czajkowski considers San Diego, California home, although she lived all but the past 10 years in Wisconsin.  As a child, she loved the wonderful adventures to unknown places that books could take her, and, as an adult, books have always gone with her, whether running errands locally or traveling the world.  She even reads while she walks, combining two of her interests. Watching her two daughters also fall in love with books, both reading them and writing them, has been one of her greatest joys.  Her other favorite activities include cooking, baking, and then eating the results!
