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: PJ O'Brien on May 3, 2015 :
A nice jumble of fairy tale characters appear as cameos in this fun little short story. It's told from the perspective of a frog, who's become tired of hopping around to look for bona fide princesses to kiss him to break a witch's spell. Particularly disillusioned by young women who claim to be princesses in hopes of ending up with a rich handsome prince to marry, he decides to outwit the witch, outmaneuver her cat, and call on an assortment of accomplices to learn how to reverse the spell himself. Another terrific and whimsically twisted tale by Sarina Dorie.
