Million-copy bestselling author of the Starshine Cove and Comfort Food Café series, Debbie Johnson, has signed a two-book deal with Storm. Publisher Kathryn Taussig agreed a deal for World English rights in ebook, paperback and audio with Hayley Steed of Janklow & Nesbit UK.

The deal sees the continuation of Debbie’s successful Starshine Cove series, which was launched in summer 2023. Set in the fictional seaside town of Starshine Cove, the series has already resulted in brilliant reader reviews and millions of Kindle Unlimited pages read. Debbie will also be writing a standalone Christmas novel for Storm, to be published in Autumn 2024.

Debbie Johnson says,

“It’s been great working with the fabulous team at Storm, and I’m so excited to continue working with them to put more feel-good books in the hands of our readers.”
