As a child, Sarina Dorie dreamed ofbeing an astronaut/archeologist/fashion designer/illustrator/writer. Later in life, after realizing this might be an unrealistic goal, Sarina went to the Pacific NW College of Art where she earned a degree in illustration. After realizing this might also be an unrealistic goal, she went to Portland State University for a master’s in education to pursue the equally cut-throat career of teaching art in the public school system. After years of dedication to art and writing, most of Sarina’s dreams have come true; in addition to teaching, she is a writer/artist/fashion designer/belly dancer. She has shown her art internationally, sold art to Shimmer Magazine for an interior illustration, and published another piece for the April 2011 cover of Bards and Sages. Sarina’s unpublished novel, Silent Moon, has won awards from the Romance Writer of America. She has had several stories published: “Zombie Psychology” in Untied Shoelaces of the Mind, “Losing One’sAppetite” in Daily Science Fiction, “Worse Than a Devil” in Crossed Genres, and “That Stupid Dragon Rider” in the ROAR 5 Anthology.
Now, if only Jack Sparrow asks her to marry him, all her dreams will come true.
