About the Author - Deborah Scruggs-Cox
Deborah Scruggs-Cox is a McMinn County, Tennessee, native whose parents developed in her a sense of passion for reading, writing, and learning at an early age. After she graduated from Hiwassee College and, also, Big Bend Community College, she had a desire to "see the world" and "be all that she could be," so she enlisted in the military.
