Dorothy has known she is a writer from a young age. Her mother took her to the library on Saturdays, and whenever she opened a book, she would fall inside and join the story. She has enjoyed writing stories and poetry ever since.

personal stuff

Dorothy has been married for a quick-long time to a wonderful guy who taught her how to fish. He also introduced her to some fun stories such as The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. [Try reading those while listening to flute music.] Together they have three children: one girl and two boys.

They read all sorts of books aloud. She takes books everywhere, I’m afraid. Stories, true and improved, are a part of their lives. They walk often on woodsy trails, swim outside, have learned to ski and create art, all usually with a book close by. [Reading by a roaring fireplace, as Bilbo Baggins would have done, is a lovely way to spend time at a ski lodge when one feels more like an icicle than a human bean.]

Two dogs came to live at Dorothy’s home. They are O’Malley and Luke, both Shelties. They play well together, although O’Malley gets testy with his best pal at times.

Two kittens found their way into our home recently, as well. They are Millie the Calico, and Bo the orange Tabby. They were quite wild at first, but now they are helping me with my work!

Dorothy loves learning. She is currently studying English Literature at a university in Calgary where she is challenged to improve her writing, as well as broaden her reading tastes.

The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance. – Aristotle
