Author Biography

Amazon best-selling novelist Dorothy Wiley is the author of four 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 our country.

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 four awards, notably an Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Quarter-finalist, a Readers' Favorite 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.

Wilderness Trail of Love (American Wilderness Series Romance) (Volume 1) by Dorothy Wiley is set in 1797, on America's frontier. Stephen Wyllie longs for land in far away Kentucky, and he is willing to brave the wilderness and all the perils of traveling there to make a better life for his wife, Jane, and their four daughters. He gathers his family to make the trip with him and hopes they will all arrive at their destination in one piece. Jane is uncertain about leaving her home and exposing their family to danger for a piece of land, but agrees to go because it is what Stephen wants, and she can't bear to separate the man from his dream. When the harsh realities of their journey nearly tear them apart, Stephen and Jane must find a path through more than the wilderness.

Dorothy Wiley has crafted an exciting historical romance that captivates and amazes. Heart pounding conflict from the start, excitement that carries through to the very end, and many situations that keep you on the edge of your seat are all reasons to keep reading Wilderness Trail of Love. Characters that love deeply, but also have room to grow and evolve, Stephen and Jane share a tender and heart melting bond of love. Their strength and determination to make it through their journey for themselves and each other is inspiring. The rest of the cast are strongly written and they all mesh together well. I enjoyed every minute of this book and recommend it.
