CM Doporto is a native Texan and resides there with her husband, son, and daughter, enjoying life with their extensive family along with their Schnauzer, Chewie (yes he’s named after Chewbacca) and several fish.
CM earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism from The University of Texas at Arlington. She worked briefly in the area of Public Relations and Advertising, and then pursued a career in the field of Human Resources. CM considers herself a life-long learner and returned to school and earned her Master of Art’s Degree in Organizational Development from Dallas Baptist University.
CM’s hobbies include interior decorating, fresh flower design, costume sewing, playing the piano, doing her nails, and working out. CM’s passion for learning is evident through her vast library collection of non-fiction books. It was after several life-changing experiences that she woke up and decided it was time to ‘smell the roses’ and started enjoying fiction stories. It was through various revelations that she discovered her love for creative writing and started on her new journey.
Although CM can’t honestly say that she loved to curl up with a book, because of her association with reading to learn, she did come to discover a whole new world in fiction writing. It was mainly her late father’s influence of sharing his passion for Star Wars, Star Trek, and Superman movies that sparked her interest in the Science Fiction Genre. Couple that Science Fiction passion and a romantic at heart and boom, you get CM’s stories about ordinary females who do extraordinary things, become a heroine, and find love along the way.
CM is a member of Romance Writers of America and is associated with the Young Adult Special Interest Chapter.
