A veteran poet and Philadelphia author, Dorothy Goins embraced her talent as a writer through encouragement from one of her professors while attending Temple University in 1996. Her most recent novel, A WOMAN SCORN'D is a national best-seller that has received great recognition. Goins penned her first publication in 1998 when she self-published, Woman I Know; a book of poetry written to uplift


Background Information

Taking her talent very seriously and by the storm, she began performing with a literary group of writers she helped to collaborate. Goins exposed her spoken word talent through the open mic venues and gained enough confidence to write her very first novel. This path has led her on what she refers to as an inspirational journey that overall has heightened her passion to write. Pooling together financial resources, she started her own publishing company, Xpressit Publications and released her novel, Married Man in May of 2002.

Married Man is the love saga of Miles Jordan and Kendra Davis whose paths cross after nine long years. Miles is totally unhappy in his marriage to April, the woman he chose over Kendra. Realizing he let Kendra go for all the wrong reasons, he sets out to find her and hopes to rekindle what they once had together. When these two reunite, a lot of issues fall on the table rendering both Miles and Kendra unprepared for the consequences they must face.

Goins second released novel, A Woman Scorníd made its debut in May of 2005 and has made record sales.

A Woman Scorníd ventures into the life of psychotherapist, Roxane Brissett. Born Jamaican-Creole, Roxane struggles inwardly with her own issues; being raped at thirteen by her own father and being raised by an aunt who was never supportive or loving towards her. She opens her practice right in the heart of Manhattan with the intention of changing these women way of thinking and giving back in her own significant way. But what she finds out is that things are worse off than she could ever imagine for some of her clients. Especially for Bernice McCall; a client who puts her psychology background to work the moment she meets her. When one of her clients turn up dead, Roxane is forced to deal with a past that has tormented her for so long.

Featured by Power 99 FM at Sistahs 2003, WDAS 105.3 FM at the 23rd Annual Unity Day event, and WPEG 98.9 FM For Sistahs Only Expo, Goins has interviewed on several radio talk shows throughout the Tri-State areas as well as in the Baltimore-Washington and New York areas.

She was recently featured on September 18, 2006 on The Dr. Maxine Thompsonís segment of ArtistFirst in a live interview at http://www.maxineshow.com. Other press interviews include a live interview on the E. Steven Collins show on 100.3 The Beat on December 2, 2005 after Mr. Collins read a featured story about her novel, A Woman Scorn'd printed in The Philadelphia Tribune on December 1, 2005.
