Dawn's interest in words began at a young age. Dr. Seuss taught her rhymes were fun. Early in high school, Dawn found the writing of William Blake. She fell in love with his poetry; how he could paint a scene, and elicit feelings in the way he put words together. She has always kept that in mind for her prose writing as well as for her poetry. In her teens and twenties, she had poems published in anthologies and two locally published magazines. Along the way, she continued to write prose and lost her passion for poetry. This is her second published book.
