Dorothy A. Winsor is originally from Detroit but moved to Iowa in 1995. She still blinks when she sees a cornfield outside her living room window. For about a dozen years, she 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 middle-grade and young adult fantasy was more fun.
The Wind Reader is due from Inspired Quill in fall 2018. Her previous novels include Finders Keepers (2015) and Deep as a Tomb (2016).
She lives with her husband, who engineers tractors, and has one son, the person who first introduced her to the pleasure of reading fantasy.
