'As I reflect on the journey of discovery, one thing has become overwhelmingly clear to me. All that I have experienced and the many faces of my memory have all led up to this point.' On the surface, Debi kept up appearances. Despite the hardships of being a light-skinned black child in the segregated fifties, her talented personality garners what is not always welcomed attention. But beneath a seemingly unbreakable exterior lies a tortured child searching for love in all the wrong places. Debi faces adversity and forges ahead with demons she can't quite shake in the process. Black power, Buddhism, prostitution, and drug abuse complete a beatnik existence that further threatens an abused soul in need of cleansing. Searching through the 'grey rain' that clouds her perception, Debi is found by God. Hurricane Katrina, the loss of loved ones, and rehab all open a lonely woman's eyes wide to the one force that could soften and mold what she has built an entire life from, the Arizona Clay. Debi Mason has traveled throughout the United States for more than twenty years performing her stories, poems, and other musing in front of youth and adult audiences at universities, conferences, festivals, and churches. Once turning her life over to Christ, Debi blossomed into a spiritual voice for hurting and abused men and women. She is a Master Storyteller for the National Association of Black Storytellers and a founding member of the Black Storytellers of San Diego. Her author credits include Speaking Boldly As I Ought To Speak a " Vol. I and two published and staged plays, Granny's Porch and Keys to the Kingdom. She is currently a member of Total Deliverance Worship Center in Spring Valley, California, where she is active in the Arts and Culture Ministry.
