Meet the Author

Doranna Durgin spent her childhood filling notebooks first with stories and art, then with novels. After obtaining a degree in wildlife illustration and environmental education, she spent a number of years deep in the Appalachian Mountains. When she emerged, it was as a writer who found herself irrevocably tied to the natural world and its creatures--and with a new touchstone to the rugged spirit that helped settle the area, which she instills in her characters.

Dun Lady's Jess, Doranna's first published fantasy novel, received the 1995 Compton Crook/Stephen Tall award for the best first book in the fantasy, science fiction and horror genres; she now has fifteen novels of eclectic genres on the shelves and more on the way. Most recently, she's leaped gleefully into the world of action-romance. When she's not writing, Doranna builds author web sites, wanders around outside with a camera and works with horses and dogs--currently, she's teaching agility classes. There's a Lipizzan in her backyard, a mountain looming outside her office window, a pack of agility dogs romping in the house and a laptop sitting on her desk--and that's just the way she likes it. You can find a complete list of books at doranna.net along with scoops about new projects, lots of silly photos and a link to her SFF Net newsgroup. And for kicks, Connery Beagle has a LiveJournal (journal name: connerybeagle) presenting his unique view of life in the high desert--drop by and say hello!

    To toms who want kits

    Name: Willowpool
    ______________________________________________________
    Looks: a pretty calico she-cat with a white chest.
    ______________________________________________________

    Other: her old mate was very cruel to her. He forced her to
    to have $ex and abandened her when she became pregnet
    because she wasn't expecting enough kits. He wanted 7
    but she was only expecting 3. The kits are almost ready to
    be born. They are expected to be born in a week. She
    wants to have a mate before they are born.
