Jean E. Dvorak

Biography

Jean E. Dvorak is a retired high school teacher. An avid horsewoman, she rode and competed in hunter/jumpers and eventing with her horse Russell R. for many years. Then she focused on dressage and competed and trained two horses to FEI level. No longer competing, she still trains her horses and those experiences are evident in the novels where horses play a significant role.

Romance and mystery are important elements in all her novels "Fantasy writing is very liberating. It allows the writer complete control of the world. Where else can magic exist and anything at all can happen? The writer makes the rules and can take the story anywhere imagination allows. But every good story needs a little mystery and romance as well to engage the reader and connect to human emotion."

"The Magiskeep Saga," is her epic fantasy series which includes five full novels and several shorter novelettes. Ms. Dvorak has also written a number of stage musicals, plays, and vocal musical pieces, all of which have been performed locally in New Jersey, where she lives.
