Dorothy Bodoin
Dorothy Bodoin lives in Royal Oak, Michigan, not far from Metamora, the setting of the Foxglove Corners mysteries.  She attended Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan, where she earned Bachelor's and Master's degrees in English.  After teaching secondary English for several years, she left education to devote all of her time to writing.

Her first published book was Darkness at Foxglove Corners (Five Star, October, 2001), the beginning of a cozy mystery series about English teacher-amateur sleuth Jennet Greenway and her black collie, Halley.  At present, five Foxglove Corners books are in print with The Snow Dogs of Lost Lake in 2007.

Dorothy also writes novels of romantic suspense with Gothic elements.  All but one of her novels are set in Michigan, and all have canine characters inspired by Holly, her black collie, and by her past dogs.

Dorothy is a member of Sisters in Crime and the Gothic Writers and Kiss of Death Chapters of Romance Writers of America.
