Dorothy Callahan is one of those authors who annoys other authors by refusing to be tied down to one genre. If a tale demands to be told-even if she's never read a single story like it-she'll find a way to write the book of her heart. This is the only way to quiet those demanding characters begging to be heard. She lives in New York with her wonderful husband, a pride of demanding cats, and two loyal dogs, all rescued from shelters (well, not the husband). Her love of both animals and writing prompted her to start READ AND RESCUE, an organization where animal-loving authors and readers can find one another. The unique aspect to this group is that each author pledges a portion of proceeds to his/her favorite animal cause. When Dorothy is not writing, she enjoys shopping for antiques and renovating their pre-Civil War house.
