Dover Whitecliff was born in the shadow of Fujiyama, raised in the shadow of Olomana, and lives where she can see the shadow of Mt. Shasta if she squints and it’s a really clear day. She is an editor, an analyst, and a jack-of-all-trades, but mostly a writer who has been telling stories since forever, and who won her first ten-speed as a fifth grader with a first place entry into Honolulu Advertiser’s “Why Hawaii Isn’t Big Enough for Litter” contest. Dover is co-editor and continuity maven of the Later Anthologies:  Twelve Hours Later, Thirty Days Later, and Some Time Later. The Superspy with the Clockwork Eye, her first solo novel is coming soon. Dover lives in Sacramento, California with her patient husband and several hundred bears.

  1. Thank-you for following Research in English At Durham. As you’re especially interested in Victorian steampunk, you might be interested in one of our Late Summer Lectures on 13th and 14th August on “Dickensian Steampunk” (http://readdurhamenglish.wordpress.com/events/english-events-at-durham/late-summer-lectures-2013/). If you can’t make it to Durham or Newcastle, the lecture will also be podcasted shortly afterwards via READ.

    • Thank you very much! I will look forward to the podcast though I would love to see it live. Someday I will make it across the pond!

  2. Thanks so much for visiting and following my blog.

  4. Thanks so much for visiting my author blog and liking me there. I was thrilled to see your blog when I popped across to find out about you. Kindred spirits where music is concerned, I shall pop back again when time permits but at the moment just wanted to thank you for visiting me. Good luck. 🙂

  5. Thanks for visiting and following. I love the title of your book 🙂

  6. Dover (you have the coolest name ever), thanks so much for the follow. I’ve repaid the favor, not out of gratitude, but fascination. I just read your article on “The Hobbit”, and now can’t wait to see the book you’re bringing out. Looking forward to many blog trades 🙂
    Oh…and I climbed Mt. Fujiyama about 37 years ago. What a wondrous experience – the memories are still fresh, and I’ll be making a blog post about it soon.

    All the best,


    • Thank you so very much. I really appreciate the compliments (I’m blushing!) Very pleased to meet you… I’ve always wanted to see Fujiyama and climb it. My parents moved to Hawaii when I was only 6 months old and I want to go back to Japan to see the mountain I was born under. I have a picture my dad took with his brownie camera from the top before he met mom. It shows the shadow of the mountain on the clouds below… I always dreamed about doing my own version of that shot and framing them together. Can’t wait to read about your climb!

      • It’s a magnificent place, and I wish I had been older (I was a 21-year-old Marine), so I would have appreciated the significance. It’s a holy place, and I have a few pics to post with the article. Let me know when you want to do an interview, and I’ll put it on my blog…

      • Wow… you mean like a real author interview? With me? I would love to! You just completely made my day! And that you also for your service… Oorah! (Dad was army for 3 years then Civil Service, but I’ve always had a special admiration for the marines…you guys rock!)

      • Heh heh heh…yes, a real interview. I’ve done several dozen on my blog, and it’s always exciting to see a new author come along. Just tell me when you’re ready – preferably as your book is coming out.

      • The goal is early January…just as soon as I get the editing back… Wow…you do realize I will be walking around the building with a goofy grin on my face all day now, right? Thank you!

      • Don’t get carried off in a white coat. Do you belong to any writer’s groups?

      • Proud Member of Treehouse Writing Adventures, a group of Northern California writers who are wonderful mentors!

      • Very cool…I belong to a group on facebook you might like. The Authors Social Media Support Group, ASMSG for short. There are over 600 members and a website – if you want, go check it out, and it you’re interested, I can talk to the pres about getting you in…

      • Looks like an awesome group. I’d like that a lot!

  7. Cewl! email me the name you want listed, and your twitter handle, and I’ll get it done – steelerfutball57@yahoo.com

  8. I hear ya… the housework just kind of sneaks up and smacks ya on the behind when you’re not looking!

  9. Happy Christmas and happy New Year to you and all your followers….much success and good health. Jane

    Aha! This is a private message but I can’t see any email address for you on this website or on your personal site, so I’ll just send this here and ask you not to post it up. Anyway, I saw your entry in the Punahou Bulletin and just want you to know that there are a number of Punahou guys including Dave Lane and Greg Hanssen and myself who regularly work the SF convention circuit. If you find yourself at Worldcon, Balticon, Arisia, or any of those larger non-profit conventions give us a ping! I am class of ’85 and don’t remember you but would be happy to take you to lunch. — kludge@panix.com

  14. Thank you so much for following my blog, the Cow Pasture Chronicles. Welcome to the fence jumpers.
