Thomas, Debbie

Having started a degree in medicine and finished one in geology, Debbie Thomas followed the obvious path into journalism. After training as a BBC radio reporter, she lived for 10 years in Bangladesh and South Africa where she worked for aid agencies and never quite plucked up the courage to go shark diving. She now lives in Kildare with her husband and three children. She runs creative writing classes, works for a charity supporting people with leprosy, and dreams of swinging from a bridge in Ecuador. She is the author of Dead Hairy and Jungle Tangle.
