#1 NYT bestselling author Debbie Macomber’s novels have spent over 990 weeks on the bestseller list with twelve hitting the #1 spot. She was the inaugural winner of the Quill Award for romance in 2005 and has been awarded both a RITA and a lifetime achievement award by the Romance Writers of America.
Debbie Macomber writes stories of everyday hope, love, and forgiveness. Her uplifting lectures draw fans from all across the country. She is one of today’s most prolific and popular authors of contemporary women’s fiction and is the author of numerous bestsellers, including Sweet Tomorrows, A Girl’s Guide to Moving On, Last One Home, Blossom Street Brides, and Rose Harbor in Bloom.
Best known for her beloved Cedar Cove and Rose Harbor series, Macomber has also published bestselling cookbooks, several works of nonfiction—such as the popular One Perfect World—an adult coloring book, and two acclaimed children’s books. Every year Macomber delights her readers with a Christmas novel celebrating the best of the season. Five of these novels have been made into original Hallmark Channel movies. The Cedar Cove series was made into Hallmark Channel’s first scripted dramatic series, and ran for three seasons.
Macomber started out on a rented typewriter on her kitchen table, determined to become a writer while also raising four young children. 168 titles later, she now owns two businesses in addition to being a writer, The Grey House Café (formerly the Victorian Rose Tea Room) and A Good Yarn Shop (featured in the Blossom Street novels) in Port Orchard, WA, the town which inspired the Cedar Cove series.
Macomber and her husband serve on the Guideposts National Advisory Cabinet and she is World Vision’s international spokesperson for their Knit for Kids charity initiative, which includes Macomber’s own Knit One, Bless Two. She is also a Pearl S. Buck International Honorary Board Member and the recipient of a lifetime achievement award by the Romance Writers of America.
