Author Biography

Amazon best-selling novelist Dorothy Wiley is the author of five books, including her highly-acclaimed debut novel Wilderness Trail of Love, the first in her American Wilderness Series Romances. Called a “deft new writer of intelligent romantic fiction,” Wiley enjoys writing action-packed romantic adventures set in the late 18th-century American wilderness. Her books celebrate the rich historical heritage of the frontier and the courageous settlers who shaped America.

Like Wiley’s compelling heroes, who from the onset make it clear they will not fail despite the adversities they face, this author is likewise destined for success. In 2014 and 2015, her novels won five awards, notably an Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Quarter-finalist, a Readers' Choice Gold Medal, and a Historical Novel Society Editor’s Choice. Her books continue to earn five-star ratings from readers and high praise from reviewers.

The daughter of a talented artist, Wiley inherited her father’s creativity. Raised in southern California, she attended college at The University of Texas in Austin, Texas. She graduated with honors, receiving a bachelor of journalism, and grew to dearly love both Texas and a 7th generation Texan, her husband Larry Wiley. Her husband’s courageous ancestors, early pioneers of Kentucky and Texas, provided the inspiration for her novels.

After a distinguished career in corporate marketing and public relations, she is living her dream—writing historical romances. Wiley is currently at work on a new book.

Losing her job is a devastating blow to Kelly and William wants to help – but can he make a move for the woman he loves without scaring her? A series of incredible events demonstrate to each of them how important the other is, but the question is whether they will survive these challenges to even have a chance at a future together.
