D.W. Plato has a degree in Business Management and Psychology. This education gives her the multiple skills she needs to be a full-time landlord. “One of these days I’ll be a full-time writer and a part time landlord,” she jokes. Traveling is her other expensive hobby. With the current COVID crisis, she’s grateful she’s seen as much as the world as she has. “Everywhere I go, there’s another story idea,” she says.
On a personal note, if she’s not writing or traveling, she’s spending time with her husband, reading, or gardening. She loves the country life after living in rural New Mexico for the past 17 years. “I live in the only place in the country where ‘South Mountain’ is in the North and the ‘East Mountains’ are in the West,” she laughs, “and the sunsets are three-hundred and sixty degrees. New Mexico is America’s best kept secret. Sshhh…” Her and her husband have three mutt dogs and love to cook together. Follow her on all the social media sites to keep up to date.
Watch for her up and coming book, The Dragon from Guangzhou (available fall/winter of 2020). Her other novels are, The Sinners’ Club (2016), Glue (2017) and Trials&Tribulations of Modesty Greene (2018). They are available on Audible, Kindle or paperback through Amazon.
