About Sarina Dorie

As a child, Sarina Dorie dreamed of being an astronaut/archeologist/fashion designer/illustrator/writer. Later in life, after realizing this might be an unrealistic goal, Sarina went to the Pacific NW College of Art where she earned a degree in illustration. After realizing this might also be an unrealistic goal, she went to Portland State University for a master’s in education to pursue the equally cut-throat career of teaching art in the public school system. After years of dedication to art and writing, most of Sarina’s dreams have come true; in addition to teaching, she is a writer/artist/ fashion designer/ belly dancer. She has shown her art internationally, sold art to Shimmer Magazine for an interior illustration, and another piece is on the April 2011 cover of Bards and Sages. Sarina’s novel, Silent Moon, won second place in the Duel on the Delta Contest, hosted by River City RWA and the Golden Rose contest hosted by Rose City Romance Writers. Silent Moon won third place in the Winter Rose Contest hosted by the Yellow Rose RWA and third place in Ignite the Flame Contest hosted by Central Ohio Fiction Writers.
Now, if only Jack Sparrow asks her to marry him, all her dreams will come true.

Review by: Garrett Marco on Jan. 17, 2013 :
Sarina Dorie has an edge at creating relatable characters and situations in the mythic. In Dawn of the Morning Star, we’re allowed into the mythological Puritan culture of early America, which is aptly paired with a mythological creature’s appearance (the titular Morning Star), though neither is quite what we expect them to be. Though this tale has the trappings of Puritan culture and biblical allusion, the deeper questions and themes here are that of existential humanness and that ever present wonderment with the notion of love; perhaps it is how these two ideals intertwine that Dorie successfully creates a story worth reading.

An enjoyable novella that reminded me of The Witch of Blackbird Pond in flavor. I'm always happy to walk through a story with this author's characters -- I found it easy to get caught up in Sarah's plight and her romance with the fallen angel. I also loved the subtle hints at a sci-if edge to this tale.
