About Dorothy

She enjoys painting, singing, gardening, writing, and investigating local history and mysterious animals. Work experience includes secretarial (adoption agency), secondary teaching, and tutoring writing and literacy. She has published local history, short stories, poems and  historical fiction.


I really enjoyed your book. I like the way you phrase your words. The tension steadily built throughout the book, building to a surprising climax. I’m so glad the goat survived. I was actually worried Stuart was going to shoot the goat. I felt sorry for the ewes without their ram. There were many, many parallels between characters. I keep thinking of more! Like the one between Isabel and Stuart – the scapegoats of the family, erupting into the uncontrolled emotion that happens when someone cops the brunt of it.
