My Bio Dorina has loved reading and writing since she was a little girl. She started writing poetry in the 6th grade, first as an English assignment, and soon discovered that she loved it.

Dorina and her younger sister Crystal are the daughters of Reverend Greg Merrill and his wife Jenny. In 2009, Dorina married her childhood sweetheart and close friend Brandon Hawkes.

Between work and the various duties of a young wife, 19th century novels are Dorina's favorite pastime.

Dorina has been active in her church since she was 14 years old, first becoming involved with the AWANA children's club as a director before moving on to other various roles. She is currently the Editor-in-Chief of the church's monthly newsletter and has been since its creation in 2006.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
a collection of essays as featured on my blog regarding various subjects from religion to politics to morality.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
My favorite authors are Jane Austen and Shakespeare. Finding places on that list are also Alexandre Dumas and Fyodor Dostoyevsky.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
If it was written by Jane Austen or Shakespeare it is a must read. I am addicted to authors not series'
