Book Promo - Dorothy Bell and her Dance Hall Road

 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.

 Release day - July 11th.


 Author bio:
 
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.
My 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.

  1. Congrats to Dorothy on her book. I love the promo for it and wish her many new fans. Her bio is equally fascinating. She should be proud of all her many accomplishments!

  2. Congratulations, Dorothy! Love the pic of you and your fur babies, too. How wonderful that you're from Oregon, home of my old fave, Mark Lindsay.
