Word Alchemist Deborah Kevin (pronounced “key-vin”) loves helping heart-centered entrepreneurs attract their ideal clients and grow their businesses by creating and implementing a compelling blog strategy or coaching them as they write their books.
A graduate of the State University of New York at Geneseo, Stanford University and a Penn State University alumnus, Debby is an associate editor with Inspired Living Publishing and a former editor of the Little Patuxent Review. She’s a member of the Association of Writing Professionals, National Association of Memoir Writers, and the Association of Ghostwriters.
Debby’s parents valued education and, when she was ten, they invested in a set of World Book Encyclopedias. Debby poured over those books! A frequent refrain heard in her home was, “Go look it up.” That’s how she became a proficient researcher long before Google. As she reflected on where her fascination with language began, it likely started with a battered Webster’s dictionary and those encyclopedias. She’s been a reader and a writer for as long as she can remember. Her undergraduate degree in Accounting served her well, but it’s her Stanford University creative writing program of which she’s most proud.
Curiosity could be Debby’s middle name. She thrives on learning new things — and will sink into any subject with glee (well, anything except math — blech; you can see perhaps why accounting wasn’t a good fit!). When you link her love of learning to her fascination with language, you can see how finding the right words to explain complex topics in a clear and concise way might appeal to her.
Deborah works with heart-centered, service-minded entrepreneurs who are out to make an impact on our world and their communities. Typically, she’s part of a team they have hired to get done those things outside their areas of brilliance. (So many people feel uncomfortable about their writing skills, yet people still read — and notice when something feels “off.”)
Debby’s passions include travel, cooking, hiking, and kayaking. Her in-process novel, Finding Grace, is under revision. Currently, she plans all viewing events for the Emmy-award winning documentary “The Joe We Know.” When they’re not out discovering the world, her family lives in Maryland with their cat Princess Leia.
