Hello, my name is Dawn.

After eighteen years of teaching public high school, I was ready for a new adventure. I decided to put my communication and strategizing skills to work helping other authors brainstorm and plan their stories. 

I live in Texas with two teenagers, two large dogs, a bratty bird, the world's oldest living hermit crab, and one handsome husband. 

When I'm not bouncing around ideas with a fellow writer or giving feedback on pages, you can either find me reading—usually mystery, suspense, or romance— or feeding my superhero obsession with Marvel movies.  

Check out my home page for how I can help you!
