Tooth fairies and bogeymen, Puritans and aliens, and robots in love with toasters. Welcome to my worlds.
As a child, Sarina Dorie dreamed of being an astronaut/archaeologist/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 Dorie has sold over 150 short stories to markets like Analog, Daily Science Fiction, Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, Orson Scott Card's IGMS, Cosmos, and Abyss and Apex. Her stories and published novels have won humor and Romance Writer of America awards. She has sold three novels to publishers: Silent Moon, Dawn of the Morning Star and Wrath of the Tooth Fairy. Her steampunk romance series, The Memory Thief and her collections, Fairies, Robots and Unicorns--Oh My! and Ghosts, Werewolves and Zombies--Oh My! are available on Amazon, along with her series, WOMBY'S SCHOOL FOR WAYWARD WITCHES.
A few of her favorite things include: gluten-free brownies (not necessarily glutton-free), Star Trek, steampunk aesthetics, fairies, Severus Snape, Captain Jack Sparrow and Mr. Darcy. By day, Sarina is a public school art teacher, artist, belly dance performer and instructor, copy editor, fashion designer, event organizer and probably a few other things. By night, she writes. As you might imagine, this leaves little time for sleep.
Now, if only Jack Sparrow asks her to marry him, all her dreams will come true.
