Hi Everyone, My name is Doris H. Dancy, and I am a brand new novelist. Without a doubt, this has been one of the most exciting times of my life. A whole new world is opening up to me, and it is a wonderful reveal. As I stated on my web page, "I cannot remember a time when I was not enthralled with reading a story or telling one." Last year I wrote my debut novel, Jagged Edges, and actualized a dream. It is a Christian romance that details the life of my protagonist, Derek Chase Wellington,III who is born into wealth, graduates from Havard Law with honors, and is prepared to marry the beautiful and talented Morgan LaRue. Betrayal stops him in his tracks, and he has to connect with Christ in order to save both his heart and soul. As a high school English teacher, English Teacher Specialist, and later Supervisor of English, I have had a multiplicity of opportunities to discuss and analyze characters. Nothing, however, has been more fulfilling than creating my own and watching them take shape and come alive on the page. It is my pleasure to be among a group who loves to write and bring to life people born out of imagination. I look forward to learning more and more about this craft, and hearing your points of view. You can view my (incomplete) web page at www.dorishdancy.com and see some of the things that I am doing. I have attached my novel to the cause of helping our young adults better understand what it means to have a Godly relationship that is based on true love and not mere infatuation. I can't wait to hear from you all and the many things that you are doing in the area of writing.
