About the Author
Peri Dwyer Worrell grew up the daughter of poor performing artists on a predominantly Puerto Rican street in Manhattan in the 1970s. From this, she gained a keen appreciation of the value of diversity, tolerance, and taking no crap from anyone. She dabbled in poetry and copy editing in her teens and early twenties, but her love of math and science and her ability to make people feel better by putting her hands on them led her, instead, into the profession of chiropractic, which she practiced for twenty-eight years in North Florida, where she reconnected with her Southern roots. When her wrists disintegrated, rendering her unable to practice chiropractic, she took that as a sign that she should return to her first love: the written word.
Besides short stories and novels available here, she writes poetry blogs about her travels copy edits scientific research articles on a freelance basis, and watches a lot of sunsets.
She is married and has four grown children.
