About the Author

Dorothy McCoy Greetings, Dear Readers!

I have written several books and I can write about law enforcement because I worked as a South Carolina State Constable, taught at the South Carolina Criminal Justice Academy, and worked briefly in a Cold Case Squad. Fascinating!

Sophie I have been a licensed counselor for almost 20 years; I have spoken at numerous international conferences on psychopaths and narcissists, and written books related to counseling. The material for this series, The Mysterious Secret Guardians, was pulled from my hard-earned knowledge and experience. I enjoy research, a skill I leaned on heavily in crafting my books. The history is accurate, the locations and science described are accurate. Before embarking on this project, I read every book I could find on Churchill, as well as many of the 72 books he wrote. I am a lover of mystery and paranormal stories and this was my chance to write both and what fun it was! I can't stop writing the series because my characters would die! So, more to come!

Sophie helps me with the big words.

I love gardening, hiking, the beach, and stimulating conversation! I would love to hear from you please reach out to me or Sophie. We answer! Hugs, Bones
