Debra S. Walling

Debra Smelik Walling is an author, artist and observer of life.  It is not so much her cell phone that is attached to her hip as it is her digital camera.  While she likes to observe life she also likes to capture life.  Debra believes having a photo, being able to go back to see what was captured at a precise moment in time, any time is truly a blessing especially when it helps one heal, renew hope or emit a long-lost smile.  A photo can actually be one’s saving grace.

Debra lives in St. Petersburg, Florida continuing her dedication as a Hospice Patient Care Volunteer of 22 years, caregiver to her father and a business associate working with her husband in their decorative art business.
