Her body and mind may have been done with Dentistry but she had another goal, a second dream that sat waiting patiently for the right door to open. Dora became her alter ego, Doris Vilk, writing and self publishing her first of the Chatham series novels Love Arrested on Amazon which rose to number one and two in Canada, top 100 in US and even sold in Japan.

As we follow the challenges faced by Susan Chatham, we fall in love and persevere ourselves. Be inspired by this Dentist turned author and prepare to be Aroused.
