Deborah Vlock is a Boston-based writer of fiction and creative non-fiction, and a blogger for Psychology Today. Her book, Parenting Children with Mental Health Challenges: A Guide to Life with Emotionally Complex Kids will be published by Rowman & Littlefield in 2019.
Deb’s work has appeared in print and online, and can be found in literary journals and glossy magazines, as well as on newsy and literary blogs. O, the Oprah Magazine, The Huffington Post, Hunger Mountain, Literary Mama, The Missouri Review Blog, YARN (Young Adult Review Network), and Cognoscenti have all featured Deborah’s essays and stories in recent years. She writes about everything from parenting kids with mental illness to square-dancing dentists to the legacies of the Holocaust to exploding cats. (O.K., not literally exploding.)
In a previous life, she was a literary scholar and published a lot of stuff she no longer understands but that looks impressive.
Deborah lives in a big old house with a storied past. The best kind of extended family resides with her there: her husband, her parents, 2 amazing kids (when they come home for school breaks), an aged Keeshond, and the house rabbit who scares him silly.
