Dory Lee Maske

Biography

I've always been a reader--loved fairy tales when I was young. I started writing when I had children of my own. My husband, Bob Maske, does all the art work for my stories. He did all the book covers and the animations that accompany each story.

I try to keep at least half of my stories and books free and would love to receive feedback from my readers. You can contact me at bbmask@starstream.net or at doryleemaske@gmail.com Thanks to all you readers out there for your support.

Grandpa and Grandma's Road Trip
This is a video we made for fun to introduce ourselves in animation mode. My husband Bob, who does all the artwork and animation for my stories, actually is not bald, but we both think the animated Grandpa is very cute. I, on the other hand, wish I looked more like our animated Grandma, also very cute. The parrot we named Taco and the cat, Lotafur. Enjoy.
