DEBORAH F. BLUM ~ Writer, Editor and Writing Coach


Hello! Welcome to my site! So glad you stopped by. Specializing in coaching and editing, I work primarily with Middle Grade fiction and non-fiction writers. I was Co-ordinator of SCBWI's Hollywood Schmooze for years and worked with writers as an editor and teacher.

I have  published stories and articles and written a middle grade novel myself and am now working on a documentary about my amazing family. Carl Laemmle  - my grandfather's cousin - founded Universal Studios Article on Carl Laemmle and my film.

The Synopsis  article on "How to Write a Synopsis" was my contribution to SCBWI's THE BOOK: THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO PUBLISHING FOR CHILDREN, published annually since 2014.

"The Runaway"- an excerpt from a YA novel appeared in Black Ace Journal in 2001. "T is for Tree: A Teaching Story," in Ngoma, A Rudolf Steiner Journal, 1999.
