Biography:
Deborah Schupack's latest novel, Sylvan Street (Plume, May 2010), explores what happens when cold, hard cash moves in next door, amid friends and neighbors, husbands and wives. "Teeming with plot twists and social unrest, Schupack shows with poignant prose and commendable plotting the good, the bad, and the ugly that money brings out in people," says Publishers Weekly. Deborah is also the author of the critically acclaimed novel, The Boy On The Bus, as well as many short stories. She has written for magazines and newspapers, including the New York Times and Los Angeles Times, and has taught creative writing at Yale, NYU, the New School and Breadloaf's Young Writers Conference. In addition to writing fiction and journalism, she runs King Street Creative, Inc., a copywriting company focusing on advertising, marketing and fundraising, and specializing in higher education, heath care and nonprofits. She lives in the beautiful Hudson Valley with her husband and two young daughters, and is a big fan of hiking and biking in the area.

Author's Timeline:
2003 (Unknown) County
The Boy On The Bus
(Pub: Free Press. ISBN: 0-7432-4221-1.)
When Charlie Carroll steps off the school bus one afternoon, his mother is sure he isn't the right child. Though he shares Charlie's copper hair, tea-brown eyes, and slight frame, there is something profoundly, if indefinably, different about him. Tense and atmospheric, this debut novel hauntingly details a mother's love for her son and the mystery that may ultimately rip them apart. 
2010 (Unknown) County
Sylvan Street
(Pub: Plume. ISBN: 978-0-452-29628-2.)
This harmonious cul-de-sac in a leafy Hudson Valley village is about to change forever when the neighbors discover a suitcase filled with one million dollars. Almost immediately, moral compromises are struck, boon turns to burden, and friendships and marriages are tested. Resonant with outside-world danger-from the echoes of September 11th to the recent economic crisis-Sylvan Street makes you wonder how well you know your neighbors, as it explores to startling conclusion the power and limitations of money.
