Debut Author Podcast: Dorothy Staley

Writer, editor, teacher, wife and mother, Dorothy Staley left the Arctic years ago, but it never left her. As the Naval Arctic Research Laboratory’s first science writer she interviewed nearly 800 scientists.

After 5 years, when family responsibilities and job opportunities took her on a trajectory from the far north to the Deep South, she never stopped writing about the Arctic in her diaries, poems, short stories, and now her debut novel.
