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, directing, parenting and reluctant housewifery. She lives in Boulder County, Colorado 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.
