Dorothy made her debut in Beezus and Ramona, the first book in the Ramona series. Previously a stay-at-home mother, she began work as a doctor's office receptionist after Robert was laid off.
Dorothy has a younger sister, Beatrice, after whom Beezus is named. Beezus and Ramona firmly believe that Dorothy and Beatrice had always gotten along famously, but the girls are shocked when Dorothy and Beatrice admit that, when they were children, their relationship was, at times, as contentious as Beezus and Ramona's; Dorothy cites a particular incident in which Beatrice, jealous that Dorothy had acquired an autograph book, proceeded to sign her name in multiple permutations on every page of the book.
