About the author

Debbie Bishop is an overcomer with boundless energy and an adventuresome spirit. Transparent, relatable, and fun best describe her writing. She holds a Masters degree in literacy from Lesley University and has taught for over thirty years.With her husband, Tim, Debbie has coauthored several works. The Bishops married at age 52, a first for both of them. Then, they bicycled thousands of miles throughout America. Thanks to these and other life experiences, their books overflow with wisdom, hope, and joy.Out of gratitude for what God has done in her life, Debbie studies the Bible enthusiastically. Her recovery from past problems and her relentless pursuit to improve fuel a desire to help others. Originally from New England, Debbie lives in Middle Tennessee with her husband. At age 52, Tim Bishop left a successful career as a corporate treasurer, married his dream girl, and embarked with her to parts unknown—on bicycles. Tim and Debbie have since coauthored several books about their midlife bicycling adventures. Wheels of Wisdom has won eight book awards, including four 1st-place finishes. Publishers Weekly dubbed the book “a roadmap for life.” The Bishops bring a strong Christian foundation to their inspirational, self-help books.In addition to his writing and publishing endeavors, Tim volunteers as a “HopeCoach” on TheHopeLine, a help service for young people who are struggling with life issues. Tim is a three-time Maine chess champion, a CPA, and a consultant for small businesses. In 2014, he penned and published a business book, Hedging Commodity Price Risk. He is still out to prove that the writing contest he won as a college freshman was not a fluke. The Bishops blog at OpenRoadPress.com.
