Deborah Raney is probably best known for her first novel, A Vow to Cherish, which was the inspiration for the award-winning film of the same title from World Wide Pictures. Her newest books, The Hanover Falls Novels series are published by Howard Books, a division of Simon & Schuster. Deb has written more than 20 novels and is thoroughly enjoying her career as a writer. However, her first and most cherished calling is wife to Ken, her husband of almost 38 years, and mother to their four children. Ken and Deb love small-town life in Kansas and being "Papa and Mimi" to four precious grandchildren who all live much too far away.
