Alis Van Doorn considers herself a work in progress, slowly evolving from the life she ordered (2 brilliant, successful husbands, community involvement, yaddyya) to the life she really wants…. Alis graduated from Sweet Briar College in VA with an honors degree in Philosophy and minors in European History and Religion. She also spent a wonderful year at St. Andrews University in Scotland. She currently lives in GA with her 7 yr. old, Sophie, a tiny giant eared scrap of joy and love. And four paws. She is working on two writing projects; a not so children’s book featuring a racy chameleon living in the French Quarter of New Orleans and a coming of age novel, set oddly enough at an all women’s college in Virginia.
