About Doreen Roberts Hight
Doreen was born in London and grew up during the Blitz of WWII. While huddling in bomb shelters with her classmates, she told stories to keep their minds off the chaos going around them.
After the war she moved to the U.S. and many years later she read an article in a magazine about the authors who wrote romances, and decided to try her hand at it. She signed up for a writer's conference and met an editor who seemed interested in the book Doreen was working on. It was published a few months later! It's been 30 more years and she still loves to tell stories. So, if you're awaiting excitement, romance and adventure, you'll find it all in her books.
As well as romances, Doreen has written several mystery series, including the Pennyfoot Hotel Mysteries, set in England at the turn of the twentieth century; the Manor House Mysteries, which takes place in an English village during WWII; the Bellehaven House Mysteries featuring a finishing school in Edwardian England, and the Raven's Nest Bookstore Mysteries. The Merry Ghost Inn Mysteries, her latest series, is set in present day Oregon.

To My Fans,
As always, I wish you all health, happiness, and contentment. I write for you, my readers, and your Emails are a constant delight. My deepest thanks to all who have written to tell me how much you enjoy my books.
Earlier this year I released a short prequel to the Pennyfoot series. In the short story, A Perilous Promise, you will learn how it all began - how Cecily became the owner of the hotel, what triggered her passion for solving crimes and her first reactions upon meeting Hugh Baxter, the man who would eventually mean the world to her. Find it on Amazon!
The Pennyfoot Christmas books became a tradition for so many of you, and I'm truly grateful for your continuing support.
Bless you all,
