Doris H. Dancy is an accomplished and award-winning educator, speaker, writing consultant, playwright, and novelist. She is a wife, mother, grandmother, and now author. Her life’s focus has been educating our youth in an appreciation of both the written and spoken word.

Growing up in Raleigh, North Carolina was a joy. Her parents provided her with so many fantastic opportunities like eight years of private school, piano lessons that started at the age of five, chances to visit large libraries, trips to the movies with her Mom and brother, travel experiences, a church that made sure she understood her faith, and parents and a grandmother who paid attention to everything that would help her forge a path to a successful life.

She received her BA Degree in English from North Carolina Central University in Durham, North Carolina and began a teaching career in both English and Spanish. She was graduated from Hampton University with a MA in English Education and eventually became Chairperson of the English Department, English Teacher Specialist, and later Curriculum Leader of English K-12 for Hampton City Public Schools. Teaching and supervising were both rewarding careers, and each taught her a different level and focus of professionalism and commitment. As the Curriculum Leader, along with many other responsibilities, she developed and provided staff development for a writing program that guaranteed student achievement. This step-by-step process is easy for students of all ages to grasp and move toward successful writing. The program continually proved itself through extremely high and consistent Standard of Learning Tests scores.

Later, after starting her own business, Pen To Paper Writing Consulting, LLC, she revised the program and presented staff development workshops to a variety of other school divisions, all of which found success with this writing process. Additionally, she provides an editing service for other writers.

At this point, she is devoting almost all of her time to writing, and has completed her first novel. This fictional romance, Jagged Edges, introduces the reader to Derek Chase Wellington, III who was born into wealth, was graduated with honors from Harvard Law, and, since high school, knew he would marry the beautiful Morgan LaRue. …but somewhere along the way, everything he thought he knew about himself, about Morgan, and even about life itself will boggle his mind, and catapult him into a world of betrayal, deception, and confusion. Somewhere in this darkness, he must search for The Light to find his way out of a maze that, if he fails, will destroy his heart forever. Now, the sequel, Shattered Pieces is in the hands of the publisher, and should be released in the very near future.

Throughout Mrs. Dancy’s life, she has found many favorable outcomes in a variety of endeavors. One of her greatest rewards has been seeing the tremendous success of so many of her students, and she has received numerous awards for excellence in educating, two of which were The Virginia Outstanding Teacher of English and The National Award for Building Successful Readers.

Mrs. Dancy and her husband, Willie Dancy, Jr. attend St. Paul AME Church in Newport News, Virginia, and presently live in Yorktown, Virginia. They have been blessed with two beautiful daughters, two sons-in-law, and three fantastic granddaughters, Cadence, Tali, and Zoey.
