Deborah Pfeiffer bio
After growing up in beautiful, rainy North Vancouver, I moved south to study broadcast journalism and English literature at the University of Oregon in Eugene, where it rains even more.
Needing sunshine, I moved to Southern California and worked for a time in Hollywood as a production assistant.
Eager to pursue a career in writing, I ended up working as a print journalist at several newspapers east of the big city of Los Angeles. There I covered beats including crime, city council, education and sports.
For 25 years I wrote countless stories, some happy, many sad. My love of journalism eventually led to a stint teaching my craft at different Southern California universities.
But exciting as Southern California is, I still liked BC best. So when the opportunity came to move back, my husband and I packed our belongings and reluctant cat in our car and drove north to Naramata.
I am now thrilled and happy to be on the Castanet staff, bringing stories of the Okanagan to readers.
