Biography

With books and dolls as her companions, Doris Elaine Fell knew from the time she was seven that she wanted to be a nurse and a writer when she grew up. She also wanted to escape the confinement of a tiny hometown with a railroad track smack in the middle. Challenged by these childhood dreams and her first train ride to the Pacific Northwest, she pursued a multifaceted career as a teacher, missionary, nurse, freelance editor and author. Her diverse professions have taken her to a Carib village in Guatemala, a Swiss chalet in the Alps, around a rugged mountain road in Mexico and aboard an ocean liner across the Pacific to a bamboo schoolhouse in the Phillipines. She also thoroughly enjoys her teddy bear collection and sitting by a river in eastern Washington with her great nieces and nephews.But it was as a high schooler that Doris knelt by her bedside and asked God for the privilege of one day writing for His glory. For the last nine years she has written full time, thus fulfilling her writing dream and expressing her love for a gracious God and her love of life and living in her six-book “Seasons of Intrigue” series with Crossway Books and in her mainstream novel Blue Mist on the Danube for Fleming Revell.
