For about a dozen years, Dorothy A. Winsor taught technical writing at Iowa State University and served as the editor of the Journal of Business and Technical Communication, but then she decided writing young adult (YA) fantasy was more fun.
The Wind Reader was published by Inspired Quill in fall 2018, followed by The Wysman, The Trickster and Glass Girl. Dorothy’s latest title, Dragoncraft, is due out in 2024.
Her previous novels include Finders Keepers (2015) and Deep as a Tomb (2016). Her short stories have appeared in Swords and Sorcery Magazine, Bards and Sages Quarterly, and FrostFire Worlds (no longer available).
She lives near Chicago with her husband, who engineers tractors, and has one son, the person who first introduced her to the pleasure of reading fantasy. Her deepest secret is that she once wrote over a million words of Lord of the Rings fanfiction.
