Deborah Burns is a former women's media chief innovation officer and brand leader for ELLEgirl, Metropolitan Home, ELLE Décor, and ELLE Global Marketing.
As an industry consultant, she helps brands and executives reinvent themselves, and she then did the same with her own life through the process of writing her debut memoir, Saturday's Child.
Beneath her business career beat a writer's heart.
As the digital age changed the face of the magazine industry, Deborah found herself in midlife yearning for some changes of her own.
She began a creative journey and founded Skirting the Rules® to help women 50+ reinvent authentic futures full of meaning, and then wrote this memoir to tell her unconventional mother's story.
