About bettydravis

BETTY DRAVIS was born in Hamilton, Ohio, one of seven children of John and Felda Barger. Her natural writing ability was nurtured by a “great Ohio school system, caring teachers, and a loving family.”

She is a sensitive writer, adept in many genres. Her fourth book (first nonfiction) was published in May 2009. It’s titled DREAM REACHERS and is a compilation of inspiring celebrity interviews, including Clint Eastwood, Jane Russell and Ted Kennedy, along with gifted up-and-coming artists. On this book she collaborated with poet and celebrity interviewer Chase Von.

This talented woman is also the author of: 1106 GRAND BOULEVARD, an epic romantic thriller; THE TOONIES INVADE SILICON VALLEY, a young adult fantasy adventure; and MILLENNIUM BABE: THE PROPHECY, a mystery adventure. She also has short stories published in an anthology and her Amazon Shorts continue to be best-sellers.

Dravis has a large family in Silicon Valley, but now resides in Central California where she’s writing a sequel to “The Toonies Invade Silicon Valley” and has other Works in Progress (WIPs). She is also working to promote Stem Cell Research, along with her daughter Mindy James whose son Seth suffered a spinal cord injury. Read Seth’s story at:

Of writing, Betty says, “Writing a book is like sliding down a rainbow; marketing it is like trudging through a field of ‘chewed’ bubblegum on a hot, sticky day.”
