Doreen is a native Canadian happily living in seclusion in the backwoods of northern Alberta. She has no formal training in the craft of writing, but is a voracious reader and has acquired knowledge from leading authors who offer invaluable inspiration. It is real people, however, who inadvertently supply Doreen with fodder for her humorous and unfortunately sometimes tragic stories, which have been published in various magazines and short story collections. To her delight, Doreen’s one and only book submission Thedragondream was recently published. Read her story Glamour Girl on page 27.
