The inspirations for Dorlana's books and short stories are fairy tales, the supernatural, and classic romantic comedies. She has several books (teen and adult) available.
She lives in Texas, near Houston, which is also the setting for her upcoming romance series, Trouble with Men. The series will have fun, new dating terms and concepts, outrageous shenanigans, and a touch of magical realism. Characters move in and out of a downtown Houston multiplex - a 1920s house (some say it's haunted) that has been renovated into four separate apartments. Trouble with Men series will be published by Soul Mate Publishing starting as early as August of 2015, beginning with the romantic comedy, The Trouble with Snowmen.
Snowmen drift into your life like they were sent from above. The relationship is great, rolls right along, and builds. Everything seems perfect … until a little heat is introduced. Then they melt, leaving only their hat, their scarf, something to remind their victims of what they’d lost.
Urban cowgirl Haley Monroe is told that the fabulously hot guy who just dumped her was a snowman. Her friend Maximilian convinces her that the only way she’ll ever stop being played by snowmen is to become one. It takes a lot of drinks to work up the nerve, but Haley gets her sexy on and goes on the prowl.
Famous horror author Larry White drops everything to attend a midnight séance at Maximilian’s apartment where he meets Haley. By the way she’s dressed—and just propositioned him—he assumes she’s a hooker. Larry can’t pass up the chance to get inside her head, especially since prostitution is the character’s occupation in his next book.
After spending the weekend together, unexpected sparks surprise both Haley and Larry. The trouble is Haley is dead-set on snowmanning the unkempt “starving artist” she met at the séance, and Larry doesn’t think he could have a real relationship with a woman with a past, so they go their separate ways.
The real fun begins when they meet again and find out neither one of them were who they thought they were. Can they reignite the flame? Or will they have a snowman’s chance in hell?
