The Story Behind the Name

Dorothy Jean Publishing is named after our founder’s maternal grandmother, Dorothy Jean. She was the matriarch of the family and played a vital role in not only his upbringing, but his siblings and cousins’ life as well. As a child he witnessed his grandmother’s relentless care for her family and her commitment to keep the family unit together as one. It is because of her altruism and perseverance that DeAngelo and his family was able to survive tough times and thrive forward. Not forgetting the lessons and wisdom his grandmother taught him, he has built Dorothy Jean Publishing on such foundations and values from her teachings. This is why Dorothy Jean Publishing fully commits itself to its writers and seeks to deliver the very best storytelling to its readers.

About Founder

Motivated by years of rejection letters to not only himself but to others alike and navigating the gatekeepers of major publishing companies, DeAngelo, launched his own independent publishing company. One of the sole intents of building an independent publishing company was to present the world with stories of inspiration and unwavering hope, that major publishing companies tend to overlook and are not fully committed to sharing with the world.
