Hello, my name is Dawn.


I am a yet-to-be published writer of mystery and romantic suspense. I used to spend my days pretending to be a school teacher and my evenings trying to figure out where to hide the bodies (of my characters, not my students.) I recently made the leap to full-time author. 

I live in Texas with two teenagers, two large dogs, one noisy bird, one odd snake, the world's oldest living hermit crab, a severely neglected fish and one handsome husband.
