About Dawn

Dawn's writing experience includes writing a weekly column for The Cherokee Scout, copywriting for small businesses, penning two screenplays, writing a children's theater program, and creating various Bible studies for women.


After many years of desiring to write a novel, with support and encouragement from her husband, Nic, she decided it was finally time to chase her dream of becoming a published author.


In addition to writing, Dawn created and hosted the Minding Her Business radio show and podcast that featured female entrepreneurs and business women.


Dawn is mom to three grown children and one well-loved fur child. A long-time resident in a small mountain town, Dawn now makes her home close to the beach in Charleston, South Carolina.  She relishes in sunny days, butterflies, bicycles, and anything that brings joy and beauty.

Dawn is represented by Tamela Hancock Murray of the Steve Laube Agency. Click here to read the back cover copy of her first novel
