Debbie Bulger grew up roaming among the lakes and apple orchards of Leominster, Massachusetts. Even as a young girl in grade school, she knew it was wrong that the Nashua River ran blue or red from the dyes dumped by the paper mills upstream.
Writing has always been an important part of her life. She still has the first rejection slip she received at the age of 11. She was the editor of her high school paper.
Bulger has taught high school English; served in the Peace Corps in Ethiopia during the 1960s; worked in libraries; edited award-winning newsletters, written numerous articles and brochures, served as product manager for a major hospital chain, and was a women’s healthcare consultant.
She has a B.A. in English from the University of Massachusetts and an M.S. in Communication from the University of Memphis. Her favorite pastimes include peak climbing and backpacking in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. She lives in Santa Cruz, California.
