As a child, Sarina Dorie dreamed of being an astronaut/archeologist/fashion designer/illustrator/writer. After years of dedication and hard work, most of Sarina’s dreams have come true; in addition to teaching art, she is an author/copywriter/artist/fashion designer/belly dancer. She has taught English overseas in South Korea and in the JET program in Japan, where she felt like an alien much of the time which inspired numerous stories. She has shown her art internationally and sold illustrations to magazines and currently works as a high school art teacher.
Sarina’s paranormal romance novel, SILENT MOON, published by Soulmate Publishing, won second place in the Duel on the Delta Contest, second place in the Golden Rose, third place in the Winter Rose Contest and third in the Ignite the Flame Contest. Her unpublished novel, WRATH OF THE TOOTH FAIRY won first place in the Golden Claddagh and in the Golden Rose contests. She has sold over fifty short stories to magazines and anthologies including Fantasy and Science Fiction Magazine (F & SF), Daily Science Fiction, Orson Scott Card’ s Intergalactic Medicine Show, Cosmos, Penumbra, Sword and Laser, Perihelion, Bards and Sages, Neo-Opsis, Flagship, Allasso, New Myths, Untied Shoelaces of the Mind, and Crossed Genres to name a few.
Now, if only Jack Sparrow asks her to marry him, all her dreams will come true.
