Dorothy Rice Bennett grew up in the Midwestern United States. She began filling spiral notebooks when she was 10 years old with fanciful stories that she shared with her classmates in school. Her story heroines were women of action--they flew Navy jets, they competed in hydroplane boat races, drove in auto races, and they raced horses as jockeys. In short, Dorothy was way ahead of her time, but little could she dream as a child that women would someday do those very things. As an adult, Dorothy still loved writing, but her busy life in both the mental health field and in journalism commanded her time and energy. Yet writing was never forgotten, and eventually she pushed other tasks aside and began to put words on paper. NORTH COAST is her first published novel. The characters of NORTH COAST were inspired by her own relationship with a woman several years her senior in age--a relationship that put her at peace with her own sexuality and set her finally on a path to personal fulfillment. She has since completed a second novel, GIRLS ON THE RUN, which is now available in quality paperback at Amazon.
