Dorothy Solomon, twenty-eighth of forty-eight children, learned the fictional skill of "lying while telling the truth" growing up with her fundamentalist, polygamous Mormon family, which was plagued with roundups that threatened prison for her parents and foster homes for her siblings. Her published writing includes stories, essays, and poems in a variety of periodicals and anthologies. She lives with her husband of thirty years and their children in Park City, Utah.
