Deborah Burns is the author of the highly-acclaimed memoir about growing up with her unconventional mother, Saturday’s Child. Burns is a former women’s media chief innovation officer and brand leader for ELLEgirl, Metropolitan Home, ELLE Décor, and ELLE Global Marketing. As an industry consultant, she helps brands and executives reinvent themselves, and she then did the same with her own life through the process of writing this story.
An only child, Burns grew up in prim 1950s America in the shadow of her beautiful rule-breaking mother, Dorothy—a red-haired beauty who looked like Rita Hayworth and skirted norms with style and flare. Dorothy fervently eschewed motherhood and domesticity and turned her daughter’s daily care over to her aunts. As a child, Deborah revered her charismatic mother, but Dorothy was a woman full of secrets with a troubled past—a mistress of illusion whose love seemed just out of her daughter’s grasp.
