Debbie Gray has lived in Moscow since arriving on the Palouse as a freshman at the University of Idaho in 1985. She is currently employed at the UI as a grantwriter for the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences. She is married to Phil Gray and they have 2 adult ‘kids,’ Alex and Travis. She loves creating—whether through gardening, photography, mosaics, watercolors, or writing poetry. She has always loved libraries, her mom used to drive her 45 miles to the Pocatello library where she would check out the biggest stack of books possible once a month. Her favorite children’s book is Ferdinand the Bull and she still likes to sit just quietly and smell the flowers.
