Dorothy Lecours, the only child of Dorothy and William Goggins, was born in Waterbury, Connecticut and blessed with a mother who was an avid reader. Dorothy's father, William, graced her life with laughter and enormous fun. She treasures sailing at Lake Quassapaug most of all. As Dorothy reflects on the many inspirational steps leading to the creation of S.T.A.R. Powered Twins, she still recalls the fond memories of weekly trips to the Silas Bronson Library where she experienced the joy of reading in her early years.

Dorothy graduated from Our Lady of the Elms College in Chicopee, Massachusetts. A love of teaching compelled her to continue exploring the crucial building blocks that make the joys of reading an integral part of every child's life. She received her Master's Degree in Reading from Central Connecticut State University and a sixth Year Degree in Reading from Western Connecticut State University. Dorothy went back to further her education for those children who needed a multi-sensory approach and achieved her 6TH Year+15 Teaching Development Degree, from Trinity College.

Dorothy taught first grade at B.W. Tinker School for thirty-five years in Waterbury, Connecticut. She loved this magnificent opportunity of looking at the world through the eyes of a first grader and holds dear the incredible joy that their infectious enthusiasm brought to her daily life.

Dorothy retired from teaching in 2004 and began taking Law of Attraction courses, which ignited her lifelong passion to write a children's book.
