Sundin #D70 ©2008 Linda Johnson Photography web (2)Greetings from Sarah Sundin! Today I have the honor of interviewing Debby Giusti, multi-published author of romantic suspense, her most recent series focusing on the military. Her latest, The Colonel’s Daughter, released just this month. Debby offers unique insight into the military mindset – not only is she a self-described “Army brat,” but she’s also an Army wife and an Army mom. That’s quite a heritage!

Debby, how did you get into writing? CAN Debby Giusti

Growing up, I loved to read and write, but I also loved science. My mother encouraged me to have a profession, so I majored in medical technology, and following graduation from The Ohio State University, I worked in the clinical laboratory.

I married an Army guy, and after our first child was born, I turned in my test tubes and Petri dishes to become a stay-at-home mom…although I didn’t really stay at home. I volunteered in my children’s schools, with the Red Cross, in my church, and in various organizations that helped young military wives transition into the Army way of life.

Early on, I published a few magazine articles and later wrote for medical publications. For over twelve years, I served on the editorial advisory board for Advance Magazine for Administrators of the Laboratory and wrote articles on emerging infectious diseases. Freelancing was reward, but I wanted to write full-length fiction and eventually sold to Love Inspired.

CAN Giusti BookHow many books do you have published?

My tenth book, The Colonel’s Daughter, is in bookstores this month. The General’s Secretary will be available in January. Both stories are part of my Military Investigations series that features heroes and heroines in the Army’s Criminal Investigation Division. The Officer’s Secret and The Captain’s Mission are still available in print and e-book.

As well as being an Army wife, I’m also an Army brat and Army mom, so writing a military series has been very satisfying. Because of my laboratory background, I enjoy medical stories as well and have used the information I researched for my magazine articles in my Magnolia Medical series, published by Love Inspired.
