More About the Author
Naomi Dathan is a story-teller first, and author second. The business side of writing demands that an author stick to a single style of book of a certain length and voice. It's called branding. Naomi has not, thus far, mastered branding. When inspiration hits, Naomi writes. This means:
She loves romance, so she wrote Second Friday Jess, a sweet romance about a tough Army man is thrown into the one conflict that nearly puts him under: Myra and her three clever little girls. This book will be released later this year by Wild Child Press.
Her years as a home day care provider, combined with seeing a beloved family member be abused by someone who should have loved her, were the seeds of the story that became the romantic suspense, The Temptation of Mrs. Emily Templeton (Wild Rose Press, 2012).
Her fascination with prairie life began when her third grade teacher read Little House in the Big Woods to the class. She finally indulged this fascination with her fourth novel, Whither Thou Goest, I Will Go (Kirkdale Press, 2011). She lives in Ohio with two daughters and two undersized beagles with oversized egos.
The short story, Fur Elise, springs from her experience as a mother of two bright, beautiful daughters and her hope/fear that they will surpass her in every way.
Love's Design, a romance, was the very first book Naomi wrote. It is flawed, but reflects her life in her mid-twenties, maybe most notably with the visually impaired character, Daniel, who is one version of the man who ultimately became her husband.
