Welcome to Author P.M. Dooling
Lover of all things weird and kitsch, soda junkie, Dr. Who fan, Museum enthusiast, and author of the self-published Protectors Saga.
If you could travel in a Time Machine would you go back to the past or into the future?
The past for sure, there are just so many fascinating events that would have been so wonderful to witness…as long as I didn’t get myself killed in some horrible way!
I’m going to go with dead or alive on this question and choose Stan Lee, Truman Capote, Jim Henson, J. K. Rowling, and David Bowie
The Prophet by Khalil Gibran
I wrote the Protectors Saga to really just be a fun fantasy read with strong female characters, epic fight scenes, and hopefully some irresistible romance.
Hands down, it has to be Harry Potter. Who doesn’t want to be able to do magic?
A Marine Biologist, I always had this image in my head of my catching a ride through the waves on a Humpback Whale’s back.
I’m working on the 4th book in the Protectors Saga, hopefully to be out sometime in December.
Favorite places to travel?
Hawaii, I love the ocean and I love the white sand beaches. It really is like paradise! I would also have to say New Mexico. The White Sand Dunes are out of this world…like something on Dr. Who!
It’s like picking a favorite child! Of course, I do always keep a bowl of Skittles and a bowl of Reese’s Pieces by my computer.
It’s actually coming out next year, but I’m super excited about the upcoming Avengers movie.
It would have to be J. K. Rowling

The Protectors: Book 1 in the Protectors Saga – Free @ Smashwords
Every 16-year old thinks they have the weight of the world on their shoulders. For Avery Kimball this was actually true…she just didn’t know it yet. Life for Avery was completely normal, attending school, hanging out with friends, and spending time with her family. Until the day she finds out that she and her four closest friends have a destiny that will take them far away from their comfortable and safe lives on Earth. Avery learns that she and her friends are actually a group of powerful warriors known as the Protectors, who were charged with protecting the planet of Orcatia, but were killed by the evil Emperor. To save their lives, their magical mentor sent them to Earth to be re-born. It is now their duty to return to the planet and life they have no memory of, and once again serve as its Protectors, fighting the very Emperor responsible for their deaths. Along the way, Avery must contend with battling malevolent creatures, her sometimes fragile relationships with her friends and fellow Protectors, her attraction to the mysterious King of Nightfell, and her own doubts and fears about who she truly is and who she can become.
Dark Fate: Book 2 in the Protectors Saga
Dark Fate, book 2 in the Protectors Saga continues where The Protectors left off, with Avery and Jade on their way to secure the Fairies aid in battling the Emperor. Complicating matters is the undeniable, but forbidden attraction Jade feels towards the Fairy Prince Eryk, forcing Avery to not only contend with her growing responsibilities as leader, but also the strain of trying to keep her best friend and second in command from doing something that could place all of Orcatia at risk. With her own feelings deepening for the irresistible, but difficult King Draven, Avery must find a way to push aside her ever confusing emotions so that she can lead her fellow Protectors into the most dangerous battle they have yet to enter…the battle of Blackmore.
Beginning’s End: Book 3 in the Protectors Saga
In Beginning’s End, book 3 of the Protectors Saga, Avery and the other Protectors must forge new alliances, forcing Jade to step out of her comfort zone and into doing things she would rather not do…like attend a royal ball. Avery’s relationship with King Draven comes to a head, as dark secrets from his past are revealed, throwing Avery’s world even more upside-down. All the while, the deadline for the final battle draws closer, leading to a confrontation between Avery and the Emperor that brings them full circle, and once again, only one of them can come out alive.
1 winner will receive an ebook copy of Dark Fate & Beginning’s End books 2 & 3 in The Protectors Saga.
