About the Author

Debbie Nutley is an award-winning children’s picture book author, certified meditation instructor and trained to teach mindfulness to children. Her picture books, Pengwee’s Breath and Ruby’s Heart Song, both contain engaging stories involving two adorable and best friend penguins. Each story weaves lessons of mindfulness and social-emotional learning. Always finding inspiration in music, Debbie collaborated with composer and songwriter Wells Hanley to create a musical rendition of the signature song embedded in the story of Ruby’s Heart Song.

Debbie has a large extended family with a cadre of kids. Eons ago, Debbie was an accomplished attorney and human resources leader. Then she sat still for a moment, took a few mindful breaths, and forged a path of purpose-driven and creative endeavors.
