Hello and welcome to my home on the web. My name is Debra Webb Rogers, and I write fiction and create tatted jewelry under the name Violet Rightmire.
I retired from the world of professional ballet several years ago, and I now divide my time between teaching dance, writing novels and tatting jewelry. I also enjoy tracing my family history and writing books on genealogy and history.
So relax and enjoy browsing the site. You can contact me at this address:
