Debbie Raney has spent her entire life in the agriculture industry. She grew up on her family ranches in the Harney County communities of Frenchglen and Diamond, and she and her husband, Hoot, now raise beef cattle on their ranch in Riley. In her “spare time” she records her life as a ranchwife in photos and written word. Her first book, “Hair On Barbed Wire – Portraits of Ranching Life,” was published in 2014 by Inkwater Press. Debbie has published freelance articles and photographs in several agricultural publications, and worked as a newspaper editor for several years.
