Meet The Author

Meet The Author

The Dorian half of Dorian Moore works as a preschool teacher by day, but in her free time, she is a book-hoarding dragon with a frozen coffee in one hand and a pen in the other. In school, it was believed she was an avid note-taker, but she was really writing stories in her composition notebooks and avoiding math like the plague. When she’s not killing off characters, she’s helping them find love. She lives in Delaware with her loving husband, two boys, and a houseful of pets. The Moore half of Dorian Moore is a therapist by day, writer by night. When she’s not working with clients or writing, she’s hanging out with her husband and young son in her hometown in Delaware. She also enjoys recreational archery and finding new toys for her pretty purple Jeep (aptly named Hawkeye). Moore writes in the fantasy genre when writing with Dorian and leans towards contemporary new adult romance (dabbling in the Christian fiction genre as well) in her own stories.

Here are her books. You can also find them at Hockessinbookshelf.

Kelly Swan Taylor

Meet The Author

Kelly Swan Taylor is the author of the popular young adult novel The Winning Ingredient and the sleuthy middle grade mystery series The Wright Detective. When she’s not concocting unique recipes in her kitchen or hovering over her keyboard, this attorney and former laboratory scientist spends her time as a competitive runner. With experience racing from sun-drenched Hawaii to frigid Iceland, her first publishing credit was in Simon & Schuster’s best-selling book series, Chicken Soup for the Soul, Running for Good, highlighting the historic 2013 and 2014 Boston Marathons. Growing up immersed in beloved “Teen” novels, Kelly now crafts her own sweet stories that bridge the gap between middle grade and young adult fiction that is so often forgotten but so sorely needed in the market today. In fact, she is so passionate about bridging this gap that she founded the imprint Link Press, dedicated to bringing these stories back to young readers. As a believer that there is magic in the everyday, she has a soft spot for the kind and sincere yet flawed character, who tries to do the right thing, stumbles along the way, but eventually becomes a hero in everyday life. Kelly resides in Providence, Rhode Island with her architect husband, Jonathan, and her spirit animal and trusted kitty, Otto. Her new young adult ice hockey mystery/thriller Frozen in Time releases in early fall 2023.

Here are her books.
