Meet the Author

Dorcas Hoover

          Dorcas Sharp Hoover, a former school teacher, lives with her family in Dover, Ohio, a short drive from what is known as “Amish country.” Dorcas is married to Jerry, pastor and businessman. They have six children ages five to 19. Dr. Elton Lehman delivered four of the Hoovers’ six children in the birthing center he designed. At every delivery, he always had a new story to tell. Jerry Hoover would say, “Dr. Lehman, you need to write a book!” Dr. Lehman would reply, “Yes, but I’m not a writer.” And then, Dr. Lehman asked Dorcas if she would write his story. House Calls and Hitching Posts is Dorcas’ fourth book.
