"There's a deep honesty about this whole book that's really remarkable. The characters are deeply flawed, and the relationships are realistically complex. Pitchford doesn't treat her characters gently. There are things to love and hate about nearly everyone. ... If you are a fan of Laurie Halse Anderson (author of Speak
), you'll like D.L. Pitchford. 'If We Had No Winter' is a book I wish had been available to me when I was in college. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author, and more about Billie Dixon." -Literature Lynx
About the Author
D. L. Pitchford was the youngest of four daughters born in Northern California to her parents Bobby and Pam, but the family moved to Southwest Missouri when D. L. was only four.
A love of creativity and a hunger for learning were an essential part of D. L.'s childhood. Her mother encouraged art and literature in every form, and by the age of ten, D. L. was already writing her own stories. This love only grew as D. L. attended college at Drury University, where she got her BA in English, Writing, and Fine Arts in 2013.
In 2014, D. L. married her husband, and they now have two little boys.
