Dorothy K. Morris is a native of Charleston, SC, a city some of her forefathers from England, Wales, France, New England and Barbados helped establish in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. She grew up in the Low Country of South Carolina, steeped in the tradition and pain still felt from the residue of slavery, the Civil War and its aftermath. Well traveled, she adopted the West as her home and has remained there for many years, now residing in Tucson, Arizona. She lives with her standard poodle and two cats. In addition to writing historical novels, Dorothy is an accomplished equestrienne and has been a competition coach for Combined Training. She enjoys genealogy and obtains many of the elements of her characters and plots from her extensive family history. She is a member of National Society Daughters of the American Revolution and is listed in Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who of American Women. Morris has two daughters, one grandson.
