Debbie Manber Kupfer grew up in London. She has lived in Israel, New York, and North Carolina and somehow ended up in St. Louis, where she works as a writer, editor, and a freelance puzzle constructor of word puzzles and logic problems. She lives with her husband, two children, and two very opinionated felines.

She is the author of the young adult fantasy series, P.A.W.S. and several picture books including Adana the Earth Dragon. Her puzzles have appeared in Penny Press and Dell Magazines, on the wall of the Eltana Bagel Bakery in Seattle and on a mug produced by the Unemployed Philosophers Society.

In addition, she has stories in several anthologies including Fauxpocalypse, Stardust, Always, Winter Wishes, and is the editor of the Sins of Time horror anthology series. She has also published a book of puzzles, Paws 4 Logic, with her son Joey. She believes that with enough tea and dark chocolate you can achieve anything.
