Deby Fredericks has been a writer all her life, but thought of it as just a fun hobby until the late 1990s. She made her first sale, a children's poem, in 2000. 

Fredericks has six fantasy novels out through two small presses. Her current series is The Minstrels of Skaythe.

In addition, she writes for children as
Lucy D. Ford. Her children's stories and poems have appeared in magazines such as Boys' Life, Babybug, Ladybug, and others. She formerly served as Regional Advisor for the Inland Northwest Region of the Society of  Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, International  (SCBWI).
