Resident of Palma Sola Florida, Deborah Dolen has authored 36 "how to" books and films spanning a decade. Author Deborah Dolen lives on the Gulf of Mexico in Florida with her golden retriever "Ringo" who was a Katrina rescue canine. Deborah Dolen's work in book and film can be found on mobile platforms, although most of her hard copy books were allowed to go out of print in 2006 due to the mobile platforms offering more convenient delivery making her hard copy books and films mainly collector's items.

Most of Deborah's musings revolve around natural or environmental affects. Deborah is a graduate of Eckerd College in St. Pete, Florida and Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida. Many of her books were the direct result of raising three daughters as a widow and projects she designed to teach them life skills, ended up being complied into books as the internet became popular and a clear demand was shown for Deborah's recipes, formulas or over all writing in general.

Deborah Dolen can be found on all of the social medias that include Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and OpenSalon.

Deborah's bestselling books include: The Beekeeper's Digest, which shows how to make a variety of finished products from bee materials - honey, wax, and pollen are spun into gold to make candles, lip balm, hand cremes, medicinal syrups and so much more. Floral Design Basics is Deborah Dolen's second bestselling book and Handwriting Analysis in Psychology is another popular Dolen authored book.
