At twenty-five-years-old, a football-sized-tumor entangled vital organs in Dabney’s chest, alerting doctors to the cancer attacking her body. But the greater fear stealing their focus grew inches below the mass: a six-week-old baby. The disease and the decision to keep her child initiated a battle with nine life-threatening illnesses, four of which were near-death experiences.
Nothing ignited her inspiration like a ticking clock.
Four years later, Tyndale House Publishers picked up
her memoir When God Intervenes.
Now Dabney speaks at churches, MOPS groups, women’s conferences and crisis pregnancy centers throughout Florida, sharing the miracles God allowed in her life.
No stranger to the stage, Dabney graduated Cum Laude from Palm Beach Atlantic University with a BA in Theatre, and spent many years actively involved in Wellington and Palm Beach Advanced Toastmasters.
In addition to speaking, Dabney is a contributing writer for the Good News Newspaper in South Florida. She is represented by Books & Such Literary Agency.
Married to her husband Jason for 19 years, Dabney enjoys schooling her four children.

“Couldn’t put this book down. You can see Gods heart in a clear and mighty way thru the painfully honest story that Dabney shares so transparently. After being-and still on- our own journey this was a fresh reminder of the tender sovereignty of the LORD.” ~Suji
“Wow. This truly is a can’t-put-it-down book! The first page sucked me in, turning pages as quickly as possible to
see what happened next.” ~Cheryl
“I’m not a good reader, I don’t read much because it takes too much
time. I picked this book up at 9:00 pm and couldn’t stop until I finished at 3;45 am!” ~Nancy
“What a rollercoaster ride Dabney!!!! You had me laughing and crying through the whole book. First book I’ve read in 20 years.
God is own your side!!!!!” ~Tom
