About the Author
Deppsdebb was one of the first authors to ever write fanfic on the Johnny Depp Zone—her earliest stories appeared in 2003, before the Zone even had an official fanfic forum. Debb’s gift for vivid dialogue and characterization, and her ability to create a complete world in her work has made her a Zone favorite. Her other Zone novel, Pirate’s Heart, explores the life of Jack Sparrow before the time of Pirates of the Caribbean; it can be found on the Zone’s Fanfic Works-in-Progress forum. The Waiting Room, completed in the fall of 2004, holds the distinction of being the most ambitious work of fiction ever completed for the Johnny Depp Zone.
