How Port Orchard’s Debbie Macomber almost didn’t become a bestselling author<< All Articles
PORT ORCHARD, Wash. — Ask anyone from the southern half of Kitsap County about their most famous neighbor and they likely have a story about best-selling author Debbie Macomber.
Macomber has been a published author for nearly four decades. Her popular series aimed at female readers has inspired television shows, movies, calendars, magazines and more than 100 Hallmark products; her name is a multi-million dollar media brand.
So, it shocks some people to know that as a little girl Macomber was told she would never do well, or that an editor told her to throw her stories in the trash.
