It's my great pleasure to bring you today an old friend and fellow author Dorothy Bell. We were both authors at Wild Child Publishing that, as you know, closed its doors at the beginning of 2017, and were tutored by the same editor. Dorothy presents her soon to be released book.

I grew up in southern Iowa,
moved to Oregon’s Willamette Valley at the age of eleven. I was in the
sixth grade when I started school in Oregon. On my first day of school, I
encountered the boy I would eventually marry. He kept pestering me,
trying to kiss me. I held out until I turned sixteen, then I kind’a got
the hang of the kissing thing. We’ve been married for forty-eight years,
he’s still a pest, bless him.
I started out writing Regency Romances
to entertain myself. I took writing courses, but I think I learned the
most by submitting my work to publishers, editors and agents, and
getting feedback. Laid low for nearly twenty-five years with arthritis,
forced to use a battery-powered cart, I took up aquatic exercise and
became an instructor. After two surgeries to replace my knees, I went to
work on myself and lost eighty-five pounds, which I have kept off.
husband and I live in Central Oregon with two West Highland White
terriers, an energetic, longhaired Dachshund and one big, angora tuxedo
cat. When I need a break from writing Oregon historical western
romances, I work in the yard or my garden.
