Dori Ostermiller Book and Novel

Dori Ostermiller - Author


Dori Ostermiller was born in Los Angeles, CA, and grew up in both LA and the San Francisco bay area. At age 20, after many years as a straight-A student, she suffered a breakdown and dropped out of her Seventh-day Adventist pre-medical program. Dori sampled day-jobs as a horse trainer, magazine editor, telemarketer, model, bookstore clerk and the girl singer of a gospel band, before she left California to complete an MFA at the University of Massachusetts. Soon her writing began to appear in literary journals, including The Bellingham Review, Alligator Juniper, The Massachusetts Review, Calliope and Chautauqua Literary Journal, and her work earned a Tobias Wolff Fiction Award and a Massachusetts Cultural Council Artists’ grant.

Dori has now been teaching writing and literature for over a decade. She is the founder and director of Writers in Progress, a literary arts center housed in the Arts & Industry building (a refurbished old brush factory) in Florence, MA. WIP offers a lively community reading series, along with ongoing writing workshops and retreats led by prominent area authors (including Jacqueline Sheehan, Leslea Newman, Suzanne Strempek-Shea, Diana Gordon, David Lovelace and Dori herself). Many of Dori’s students have gone on to publish books of their own, including Alison Smith, Kris Holloway, Ellen Meeropol, Kyra Anderson and David Lovelace.

Dori is currently working on her second novel in Northampton, where she lives with her husband, two young daughters, two cats and a very pampered Australian Shepherd.
