In 2007, Dorothy K. Fletcher retired after thirty-five years of teaching high school English in Jacksonville, Florida. At that time, she began her writing career in earnest. Along with poems, articles and novels, she wrote a monthly column for the Florida Times-Union called “By the Wayside” that became the basis for the first of six histories she has written about her beloved city, Jacksonville. Presently, she and her husband, Hardy, reside in the San Jose area of Jacksonville, near their children and grandchildren, and whenever they can, they go traveling.
