Dora M. Mitchell is a writer, illustrator, and children’s librarian living in a small Northern California town that dates back to the Gold Rush. She writes surrounded by dark woods where the evidence of mining days can still be found hidden away among the trees—the inspiration for the setting of her debut novel, The Haunted Serpent (Sterling Books, June 2018). Her illustration work can be seen in The Boatman, by Kat Hawthorne (BookFish Books, 2015), and in her webcomic, The Curse of Crooked Mile.
