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’m a huge fan of combining classic fairy tales with paranormal elements and then dropping it all in a contemporary setting.
My latest supernatural fairy tale, Potion, was inspired by Hansel and Gretel. I decided to try something new in January 2019 and have posted the YA witchy tale to the social media reader’s choice platform Swoon Reads.
The first book I self-published was back in 2010. Silverweed: a supernatural fairy tale (revised in 2018), and I have added four more since then:
Jaclyn’s Ghost 2011 (revised in 2017) – Ghosts, Mystery, and Fashion
The Princes of Tangleforest 2011 – fairy tale inspired
Passage to Queen Mesentia 2011
Supernatural Fairy Tales 2011 (A collection of fairy tale inspired paranormal short stories – currently under revisions and new stories coming soon!)
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,
