 “Darkly comedic and downright harrowing, Innocence Unraveled is a revealing memoir about a young woman whose resilience led to her survival in an unkind world.”​

Driven by a lifelong passion to challenge herself with new and diverse experiences, Debbie Barnett embodies an entrepreneurial spirit that has led her to establish several successful businesses. In her early twenties, she started a hand-knit kids ware line that developed into a full-fledged business, Designs by Debbie. Then, after twenty years working in the insurance industry, Debbie left the 9-5 grind to devote her time to building D & L Property Investments, a successful real estate investment business specializing in helping those in her community resolve mortgage debt by mitigating foreclosures.

Today, unwilling to hit the brakes on her ambitions and settle into quiet retirement, Debbie is still working part-time as a Realtor and American Mah Jongg instructor. While Debbie’s entrepreneurial spirit along with her creative side has led her to several successful businesses, it has now led her to pursue her love for writing.

Great Beginner and Refresher Guide

If you only knew how many books are out there and really do not “get into” explaining in detail “The Card.” Not only is this book great for beginners, it’s wonderful to be reminded of … “Oh yes, I need to do that better.” The book is an easy step-by-step guide. Love the font. Love your style. It’s a wonderful NEW resource for me and my Mah Jongg pals!! I’m excited to read your “Golden Rules” of Mah Jongg! Thank you!
