Laurann Dohner’s books have recently enjoyed a big spike in popularity with Wrath (Book 6 in the New Species series) hitting the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists recently.

“I’m…stunned,” Dohner wrote on her blog. “Honestly. Humbled. I was a housewife with a love for writing, a dream that I refused to give up, and I never expected my books to do this well or be read by so many. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Every day I feel extremely blessed because I get to do what I love so very much.”

In the same post, Dohner goes on to tell the story of how she met her husband.

“I knew he was the one when he took me and another friend of mine shopping at the mall. She had been invited to this formal event and we were sitting inside this dress store while she tried on gowns. A song came on over the speakers and he held out his hand to ask me to dance. Glass windows to the interior of the mall be damned. So there we were, slow dancing around racks of dresses to Wind Beneath My Wings and Under the Boardwalk (Bette Midler sung them). People stopped to gawk at us but we didn’t care because it was one of those moments when only the two of you exist.”
