Doranna Durgin

Doranna Durgin spent her childhood filling notebooks first with stories and art, and then with novels. After obtaining a degree in wildlife illustration and environmental education, she spent a number of years deep in the Appalachian Mountains. When she emerged, it was as a writer who found herself irrevocably tied to the natural world and its creatures.

DUN LADY’S JESS, Doranna's first published fantasy novel, received the 1995 Compton Crook/Stephen Tall Award for the best first book in the fantasy, science fiction, and horror genres; she now has over twenty novels on the shelves and more on the way. When she's not writing, Doranna builds web pages, wanders around outside with a camera, and works with horses and dogs. Her place of residence recently settled in Northern Arizona, where the San Francisco Peaks loom beyond the backyard.

In addition to her work on Buffy, she has carved a successful niche for herself writing about other strong, capable, heroic women with her own WOLVERINE’S DAUGHTER as well as several novels in the “Silhouette Bombshell” series.
