Dori Harrell

DORI HARRELL is an award-winning writer, book editor, author coach, and speaker. When not eating licorice and fantasizing about living in Hawaii, Dori writes Christian contemporary romances. She also owns Breakout Editing and edits for mainstream publishers—including Kregel Publications and Gemma Halliday Publishing—as well as indie authors, and she serves as managing editor of Redemption Press. When not writing and overusing exclamation points, Dori speaks at writers’ and editors’ conferences, and she’s on a mission to prove that commas do make a difference—she could spend hours chatting about commas. Dori lives in Washington state with her husband, Doug, and they are huge Seahawks fans (go Hawks!), as is their sheltie, Brisco. Visit her at
