J. Dylan Yates

THE BELIEF IN Angels, Dylan's debut novel, was written over the course of many years while she worked a number of BFA-related jobs including waitressing, teaching, corporate training, nursing, interior design, parenting and reluctant housewifery. She lives in San Diego County, California and volunteered with Boulder County's Voices for Children program as a CASA for 15 years and with the Girls Rising program as a mentor. Dylan is a member of the Women's National Book Association of Los Angeles. The next novel in this series, SZAJA'S STORY, focused on the character created in THE BELIEF IN Angels, traces Szaja's ultimate journey to America via the desperate Ukranian refugee work camps of the '20s, his amazing survival of both the Majdanek death camp and the torpedoing of refugees aboard the Mefkura, and his fascinating experiences in the post-war Parisian couture houses. THE BELIEF IN Angels has been published in over 20 countries and a best-selling book in the US, China, Brazil, Germany, Ukraine, and Turkey.

Dylan teaches vocal workshops, traveling across the country to writing conferences and bookstores. She loves to visit book clubs and has attended meetings to discuss THE BELIEF IN Angels across the US, both in-person and via Skype.
