I now have a separate website where you can order all of my books as well as my daughter Emily's and my dad's.

My newest book is Coming Home to Roost. It's the seventh, and probably last, collection of family-life stories. Subjects include life with adult children, growing dahlias, and getting older.

I also have a fun little fiction booklet called Just Desserts about two teenage girls.

You can order ebooks of most of my titles on Amazon.

And, as always, you can order by mail. You can mail me a check at 31148 Substation Drive, Harrisburg, Oregon, 97446.

Postage is $3 per book.

You can also pay with PayPal at and then send me an email at that same address telling me what you want.

Wholesale prices are available for bookstores and such. Email me at or call/text me at 541-520-8510.

  1. I'm so excited to know these books are available! A friend of mine who lives in Oregon has been sending me your articles for years, as we've moved from one place to another...I love them, and I hope to send for a book very soon...just wanted to say hello and tell you how much my friends and I ( I send them on to other friends, too) love your writing! You are always an inspiration! with much love, Ramona von Moritz, Hillsdale, New York

  2. Hi, Dorcas! I love your books, and I hope that you'll write more soon!!

  3. So glad that these books are available here!!!!!!!!! I LOOOOOVE your books. Keep on writing!!

  4. Hi Dorcas. This isn't really about books, but I couldn't find anywhere else to contact you. I'd like to follow you, or subscribe, or whatever you call it, and there's nowhere where you can do that. I was wondering- Is there actually a place to do that or not? If not, that's fine. I just wondered. Thank you!! ~ Anonymous
