Thank you WRN for including Riding Soul-O in your roundup of
"7 Great Books to Inspire Past, Present and Future Motorcyclists!"
On a recent road trip to the mountains of Northeast Georgia, I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon with Frank Boorn; member of Harley Davidson's elite Million Mile Club. We chatted about my book Riding Soul-O. Thank you Frank for your endorsement of my story!
Comments from Readers
"There's much to admire in the story; vivid descriptions of America, and the simple fact that the book proves it's never too late to chase your dreams. On a purely entertaining note, Debi also peppers in tantalizing anecdotes about her relationships that kept me turning pages!"

"Thank you Debi for sharing your adventures! I downloaded the Kindle format with the intention of reading it this winter when its to cold to ride but ended up devouring the whole book in a matter of days. I also choose to ride scenic highways and back roads and I will definitely be using Riding Soul-O as a reference guide for great roads and destinations for my Bike It list."

" I couldn't put the book down! The book is very well written. It's a great story and very inspirational. What a courageous lady."

"I couldn't put the book down once I started reading! Your life story has so many twists and turns that caused me to feel as if I was riding alongside you at times. I'm very impressed that you began riding in your fifties after spending so much time on the back of another guy's scooter. That's proof that almost anyone can change their life if they are up for the challenge. Your tenacity to continue riding after your horrific crash encouraged me to keep going after my recent major surgery too!

"Rereading Riding Soul-O...Solitary: I love this poem! Thank you for writing this book. It's been a long time since I felt so connected to a book."

Author's Note: Wow! Thanks Jan...considering the book was just released Oct. 1st and you are already 'rereading,' I'm flattered!
"What a great book! As a woman rider who rides alone most of the time, was so nice to read about your travels and adventures. Thank you for being an inspiration!!

"I bought this book in November and saved it for my New Year's Day read; I always have a special book on New Year's. So glad I did it is AWESOME! I feel like I am on the bike taking all these travels you are on. When you drove up to your driveway exhausted glad to be home, I was worn out also. I love this book I know it is going into my favorites, not taking this book to trading store. I am only in the middle of it and I have laughed, cried, and had to put id down a couple of times and just relax then went back to reading! I believe you have a best seller here and maybe a movie!

In the studio with host V. Helena Yancey at The Writer's Haven
In December I travelled to the Washington D.C., area to interview with the Writer's Haven Show hosted by author and fellow Wind Sister,
V. Helena Yancy!
We talked extensively about Riding Soul-O; so much so that Valerie is making the interview a two-part segment in Season 5. That's what happens when girls get together to talk motorcycles!
Once the show is edited and slated for airing, I will post a link. The Writer's Haven is available on Youtube, Spotify, and The American Legacy Network.
Shout Out to my friends at Tampa Harley Davidson for including Bessie and Me in the Ladies Garage Night in November then again when Santa arrived in December!
