The inspirations for Dorlana's books and short stories are fairy tales, the supernatural, and classic romantic comedies. She has several books (teen and adult) available.
She lives in Texas, near Houston, which is also the setting for her new romance series, Trouble with Men.
The series, published by Soul Mate Publishing, has fun, new dating terms and concepts, outrageous shenanigans, and a touch of magical realism. Characters move in and out of a downtown Houston multiplex - a 1920s house (some say it's haunted) that has been renovated into four separate apartments.
Book 1 - The Trouble with Snowmen – eBook is available now on Amazon.
Book 2 - The Trouble with Scarecrows – eBook will be released April 13, 2016 (Pre-order today)
Book 3 – TBA
