Author Marva, DaleDebra McReynolds

Marva Dale is the pen name for author Debra McReynolds. Retired from the public relations field, Debra now spends her free time indulging in her passion for writing. "I used to fill my school notebooks with stories," Debra relates, "and then add artwork to go along with them. My second grade teacher, Mrs. Daley, predicted that I would be a writer one day."

A fan of the mystery genre, she enjoys crafting tales with a twist of suspense, a touch of romance, and a bit of humor. Her "Death by the Decade" series features each decade from the twentieth century to the present, beginning with her 1920s novel, Death of a Flapper. In addition, she has also penned the romance/family saga series, Far From Eden: New World, featuring the Traynor family in Colonial America.

Debra and her husband, Dale, make their home in El Paso, Texas, with their two dogs and cat.
