Hi – welcome to my page. I write contemporary novels for teens and adults. My inspirations are fairy tales, the supernatural, and classic romantic comedies. I like combining classic fairy tales with paranormal elements and then dropping it all in a contemporary setting. My newest release/project (July 2021) is Potion – a Hansel and Gretel inspired YA urban Fantasy. I decided to to try a new format, Kindle Vella, and I am currently uploading new episodes weekly. You can check out the schedule here.
The first book I self-published was in 2010. Silverweed: a supernatural fairy tale (revised in 2018) which is a Little Red Riding Hood inspired YA fantasy/paranormal story.
I have published more since then:
Jaclyn’s Ghost 2011 (revised in 2017) – Ghosts, Mystery, and Fashion
Supernatural Fairy Tales 2011 (revised in 2019) – A collection of fairy tale inspired paranormal short stories and poems. I post a lot of them here on my site, and they are listed on the sidebar.
I am a born-and-raised Texan who lives outside of Houston with my husband and teen-aged son. I also have two married daughters and a grandson. When I’m not writing, I enjoy cooking, watching reality TV, hanging out with said family, playing TX hold’em, and drinking on patios.
I’m most active on Instagram ( info on sidebar) and like to post pictures of my outings in and around Houston, food & drinks, and book stuff of course.
If you would like review copies, would like to be a beta-reader, or if you just have a question or comment, I welcomes emails (dorlanasfairytales at gmail dot com) and will get back to you.
Love and Laughter,
