Born of Spanish, Asian, Italian, and European ancestry, award-winning author Debbie Roppolo grew up in the Blackland Prairie region of Texas, where miles of grassland and her horse were her best friends.
Roppolo's stories have been published in newspapers, magazines, and in several of the Chicken Soup for the Soul books. Her children's book series, Amelia Frump and her Peanut Butter Loving Imagination, is published by Dancing With Bear Publishing.
Cooking is her second passion, and Roppolo holds the honor of being a six time award-winning baker, and the author of an award-winning cookbook.
Married for over twenty-two years, she resides in the Texas Hill Country with her husband and two children.
