About the presenter
Doreen has wanted to be a writer all her life but took a brief detour into being an opera singer and choral conductor. She realized that maybe she should spend more time writing when creating the back story of her operatic characters was more fun than actually singing. Plus, her romance lovin’ heart couldn’t take all the dead bodies littering the stage at the end of the performance. Doreen writes contemporary romantic comedy. She likes to create stories about intelligent, independent people finding love.
Doreen is a member of the Romance Writers of America, Central New York Romance Writers, and the Southern Tier Authors of Romance. Her first book, MIKE’S BEST BET was released on March 26, 2010, and her second, WHAT IAN WANTS, was released on June 24, 2010. CHARMING DAVE, is the third book in her At the End Zone series. The fourth book in the series, A TASTE OF HOPE, is about two chefs looking for love in all the wrong places! Tied to At the End Zone series are WORKING MY WAY BACK TO YOU and WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS, both part of The Wild Rose Press’ Lobster Cove series.
