Irene Dolnick

Irene Dolnick lives in El Paso, Texas with her husband, daughter, and her four mischievous Beagles. She loves to travel, try new restaurants, and watch classic movies. With a Master’s degree in Reading and Literacy, she works as a substitute teacher for all grade levels. Seeing that a lot of the students struggled to read, pronounce high frequency words and divide words into syllables she became inspired to write. With the help of her four beagle’s antics, she developed the desire to share some of their adventures in a children’s book. This idea incorporated the beginning reading process with an introduction or review of high frequency words, phonograms, whole words, and pronunciation all molded into a story line for beginning and struggling readers.

Irene Dolnick has worked with her new publisher to reduce the price of her books to $7.99 instead of $16.99! She enjoys accomplishing new things for her audience.
