Writers of all genres welcome!

DEBBIE REED FISCHER is the award-winning author of novels for teens and tweens. Her latest middle grade novel This is not the Abby Show (Random House/ Delacorte) won the Royal Palm Literary Award and was twice honored as a PJ Library selection in 2017 and 2020. This is not the Abby Show has been compared to Jack Gantos’s Joey Pigza series (Publisher’s Weekly), as well as Jeff Kinney’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Renee Russell’s The Dork Diaries series (Booklist). Kveller.com selected This is not the Abby Show for its Beyond Judy Blume: Must-Reads for Jewish Girls list. Debbie has been teaching writing workshops as well as speaking on author panels, at schools and literary conferences for many years.

A graduate of the University of Miami, Debbie has a degree in Screenwriting and worked for many years as an agent for film and TV, then as a middle and high school English teacher before achieving her dream of becoming an author.
