Debora G. De Farias graduated in Dentistry from the University of Brasilia, followed by a Master Degree in Health Sciences. She also obtained her equivalent D.D.S degree from the University of Florida, when she moved to the United States in 2001. Debora is passionate about her health career, literature and arts. An avid reader since the age of four, she grew up surrounded by books, fascinated especially by the true stories of those unknown heroes and heroines that are part of our history. This is one of the main reasons she began the writing journey with her first historical novel, Standing Tall. Debora lives in Jacksonville, Florida, with her husband Toan Nguyen and their son Andrew. When not writing, reading, painting or promoting beautiful smiles, Debora can be found traveling, hiking, or simply wandering around with her family and friends, always with a camera in her hands.

Standing Tall is available through a service called Biblioboard, which is a digital resource for local authors around the country. Check out other books from local authors there, or submit your own book to the collection!
