Debbie Burke is an award-winning author of ten books, including the jazz novels Death by Saxophone, Icarus Flies Home and Glissando: A Story of Love, Lust and Jazz, and the nonfiction interview series Tasty Jazz Jams for Our Times™. Her love affair with jazz began when she first learned the alto saxophone at the New School for Social Research in NYC in the late 1980s and then joined a community jazz band at a university in northeast Pennsylvania. This became the inspiration for many of her books.

A former news writer, columnist and business journal editor, Debbie's first novel was traditionally published, but she soon turned to self-publishing. She is now a professional editor and author coach at Queen Esther Publishing LLC. She also writes the internationally acclaimed jazz blog at debbieburkeauthor.com. Brooklyn-born, she has lived in six different states in the eastern half of the US, but most of all, loves being near the ocean. She now resides in Virginia Beach, VA.
