She has authored a guidebook, called Bilingual Babycare with important translations such as “What color was the —“, as well as an essay about her unrequited desire to become a Solid Gold dancer.

Deb, Contributor

Debbie (or Deb, just not Debra!) lives in the beach town of San Clemente. As soon as she visited the little town in 1996, she knew she found home. After about a million jobs, she found her calling in technology and all things web related. As the owner of San Clemente Website Design, she loves being able to explain nerdy things to small business owners and entrepreneurs – without making anybody feel stupid.
