Debbie Flint began self-publishing several romance titles and short stories in 2013. By day, she presents on QVC The Shopping Channel (well, by night actually, as she’s nocturnal!). In Summer 2014 she signed with Choc Lit the innovative UK independent publishing house. Her first novel, ‘Hawaiian Affair’ is now being released by Choc Lit and renamed ‘Take a Chance on Me’ with a new cover! Exciting! Click here to get it. It’s their first ‘Hot’ Choc Lit!

Having done three years of courses, workshops and conferences, including Cornerstones, Writers’ Workshop, Watermill Posara, Arvon and Julie Cohen. At the York Festival 2011, she reached the final of the top ten ‘Best 100 First Words’ competition for her first full length novel, Hawaiian Affair. Her fiction includes the Hawaiian Trilogy, the third part of which was finished in June 2014, other novels, and several short stories – all listed below. Hawaiian Affair achieved the sought after status of a ‘BRAG Medallion’ in November 2014, denoting excellence in self-publishing. Only one in ten books achieves this accolade. (Now as Take a Chance on Me, by Choc Lit, it achieved TOP FIFTY KINDLE BESTSELLER summer 2015.)

Previously, she wrote short stories for children’s TV (Buena Vista, ‘Rise and Shine’), and having lost 35lb in 1999/2000 wrote a book about it. ‘Till the Fat Lady Slims’ was issued in 2002 by Sahara Publishing detailing the method she used, called ‘Freedom Eating.
