… he walked a tightrope five stories up just to hold my hand.
Gaze: I moved into the building next to Pixie when I was eleven. She blew bubbles through my window. I shot my Nerf gun through hers. We both had secrets, but one of us was fated to get hurt. I wanted it to be me.
Pixie: When I was afraid of the dark, he would shine a light in my window. We shared our popsicles and I taught him how to get a good swing on the playground. I never imagined I’d have to decide who got to live and who didn’t. I chose him –and he could never know.

Hey Pixie Rae,
I woke up before you today. It’s my favorite to have you right next to me. You are integral to the center of this beautiful place I call heaven on earth. I want to be in the same room with you all the time (except the bathroom, we have that rule.) It’s hard to write you a letter telling you how I feel because words are just the scaffolding for a feeling so big and so important I’m not qualified to build it.
You were my family when mine fell short. You were my childhood when the reality was a nightmare. I know you would do anything for me. Your purpose is simply me. And mine is simply you.
I get worried this life isn’t long enough. How there will never be enough time on any clock for me to feel like we’re done making memories.
So I’m going to wake you up right now. I can’t wait another minute to see your face light up when you look at me.
Sorry in advance, but I love you too much and the meter’s running.
There are a lot of eyes in Debra Anastasia’s house in Maryland. First, her own creepy peepers are there, staring at her computer screen. She’s made two more sets of eyes with her body, and the kids they belong to are amazing. The poor husband is still looking at her after 17 years of marriage. At least he likes to laugh. Then the freaking dogs are looking at her—six eyeballs altogether, though the old dog is blind. And the cat watches her too, mostly while knocking stuff off the counter and doing that internal kitty laugh when Deb can’t catch the items fast enough.
In between taking care of everything those eyes involve, Debra creates pretend people in her head and paints them on the giant, beautiful canvas of your imagination. What an amazing job that is. The stories hit her hard while driving the minivan or shaving her legs, especially when there’s no paper and pen around. Within all of the lies she writes hides her heart, so thank you for letting it play in your mind.
Debra has written a smattering of books in a few genres. There are two paranormal romances in the Seraphim Series and now four contemporary romances in the Poughkeepsie Brotherhood Series, Fire Down Below and Fire in the Hole, complete the Gynazule Comedy Series. The Revenger, a dark paranormal romance, is finally in the light, and the last, a novella called Late Night with Andres, is special because 100% of the proceeds go to breast cancer research. (So go get it right now, please!)
