Born and raised in New York, mostly on Long Island not "The City", Dot Caffrey moved to California after high school and now describes herself as a 'Californian by choice not chance'. She did a three-year stint in the Navy before going to college and getting a Microbiology/Medical Technologist degree.
Her father told her she was a storyteller from the time she began talking (which was at a very young age). But, it wasn't until a few years ago that she decided to take her passion for writing and her love for all things magical or mythical seriously and start writing fantasy novels.
Now retired from her day job, she hopes to fill her time with more writing as well as her hobbies of creating and wearing costumes (cosplay), playing video games (though, she admits she is not very good at it), watching NHL hockey and, of course, hanging out with her friends and many cats.
