Dorenda Doyle is a retired teacher who claims EVERY student she ever had as “one of her kids!” Her favorite job in the world is being a grandmother (BoBo & Gamma) to one grandson and seven granddaughters.

She loves the outdoors and loves taking her grandkids on nature walks, helping them find little treasures and making nature art projects out of the leaves, shells, twigs, rocks, and nuts that they find. She is also an avid Disney fan, and is always game for a movie, game or trip to the actual place! Who says you have to grow up?!?

THE KID books are inspired by not only her grandkids and her former students, but most especially by her own son and his antics growing up. THE DOG is inspired by her love of all animals. Shadow and Murphy, her rescue dogs, are her constant companions and are always happy to share their opinions of her book ideas! Taco, her rescue cat, is patiently waiting for her turn in the spotlight. (Is there a THE CAT book in the future?!?)

Dorenda is available for AUTHOR VISITS and TEACHING SESSIONS
for both students and teachers.
