Debra Rogers: Award-Winning Author, Screenwriter, Speaker, Coach

This Queen of Breakovers is your best girl expert in the school of love. With years of dating and break up experience, including one crushing break up at eight months pregnant (which evolved into a supportive divorce and loving friendship) – Debra’s earned her relationship MBA.

Debra offers her relationship expertise as a regular blogger on the Huffington Post and Digital Romance. She’s also contributed to Gal Time and Relationship Headquarters. She’s appeared at the LA Festival of Books, the Women’s Journey Conference, and The Ultimate Women’s Expo. She’s also guested on numerous radio shows and has helped hundreds of women get over their ex and get past self-doubt. Debra’s heartfelt, humorous, tough-love advice has guided women into stepping into their power, passion, and purpose.

Her book, He Did You a Favor has won high praise as well as numerous awards including: The Independent Publisher Award, the Next Generation Indie Award, and the Indie Reader Discovery Award (named as “One of the best books of 2014”). He Did You a Favor has been featured in Shape Magazine as one of their “Top 10 Winter Reads” and in She Knows as “One of the top 7 books to read on Valentine’s night.”

Before He Did You a Favor, Debra worked the studio circuit for years as a script analyst and Development Associate for both film and television. Her passion for story was further expanded as a writing consultant for numerous motion picture and television writers through her company Your Best Writing Now and as a beloved board member for ScriptWrights, a prestigious LA writers group.

She also built a successful voiceover career, voicing strong, powerful women in film and television from Streetfighter to Xena Warrior Princess. Through her life experience, she discovered her own inner warrior and found that the strong heroines she’d been voicing were also within her. Debra’s now a warrior for others. She’s become a catalyst for change in people’s lives, both as a writer and as a coach.

Debra currently lives in the Los Angeles area with her amazing daughter and has finally found true love. She is currently writing the follow-up books in her Did You a Favor series.

Praise

“Debra Rogers is a phenomenal speaker and was the highlight of my writers’ retreat. She not only motivated the participants with inspiring stories, she also gave them very practical information with which to kick start their future successes. I cannot say enough positive things about Deb’s warmth, her energy, her approachability, and her intelligence. I hope to invite her back for every retreat!”
– Kathy Boutry, Director of Seedling Writer’s Retreat, Malibu

“Debra, thank you so much for speaking to us at the 2015 Seedling Writers Retreat! Before your training session, I didn’t know how to go about getting my work published in a way that wouldn’t break my wallet. I did my research after you left, and sure enough, your method is the best way for me to realize my dream. The route I was going to take would have cost me nearly seven thousand dollars! I hope to see you again at the next retreat, I’m working hard on my book so that the next time I see you, I can say thank you Debra Rogers for doing me a favor!”
– Larry Young, HLRC Tutor, West Los Angeles College

“Debra Rogers presented an eye-opening and page-turning seminar. Amazingly informative, Debra offered a number of ways that writers can get their work “out there” and published. She explained a number of avenues for publishing in today’s marketplace that I never knew existed. Based on her recommendations, I’ll be submitting my own work this fall! A personable presenter, Debra’s enthusiasm was inspiring and helped set the roomful of writers on fire! Her marketing and publicity ideas are top notch and I am eager to put them into action!
– Tom Jackson, Teacher & former Senior Content Writer (Universal Studios)

“Debra Rogers laid her experience bare in her book, He Did You a Favor, and she brought the same honesty and humor to her presentation on making your book a marketing success. She shared her hard-won understanding of what works and what doesn’t with clarity, charm, and a disarming ability to tell a story about telling a story. I came away with a notebook full of ideas and author-hacks, most of which I would never have thought of without Debra’s insight and answers. Bottom line: Debra can save anyone smart enough to consult her an enormous amount of trial and error in their own efforts to self-publish successfully.”
– Mark Olmsted, Author, “A Liar Outta Me” & Huffington Post blogger
