Dawn spends too much time on Twitter. And pinning things. And running. Basically, she’s a master procrastinator with great time management skills. When she’s not dreaming up new book ideas, Dawn is most likely watching her three sons play lacrosse.

On Height: Until my cruel husband crushed my dream, I believed I was 5’5”. Turns out, I’m short. So short, some 3rd graders at my sons’ school are taller than me, but you’d never know because I wear at least three inch heels every day. (For the record, I’m barely five feet tall.)
On Education: Proud owner of a BS degree in political science from Santa Clara University. I also attend Occidental College for two years.
On Location: After living most of my life in San Francisco, my family and I relocated to Paris. I now split my time between San Francisco, Paris, and Northern Virginia.
On Family: A lot of testosterone – I have three active boys.
On Pets: Three cats. We had three fish but they died. We also had three chickens, but had to re-home then when we moved.
On Food: If it’s spicy, I like it. If it’s made for me, I like it more.
On Jobs: I’ve had many of them. My favorites have been CEO an online retail site; working as a personal shopper; and heading up marketing for crazy British-owned consultant company (we drank more than we worked – probably why it went out of business). I’ve also worked as a PR account executive, retail store manager, and student journalist. I like to keep it diverse.
On Randomness: I cannot, for the life of me, properly pronounce the word “Iowa.” I hate cluttered floors and love organizing drawers and closets. I used to be able to do a back handspring, but I haven’t tried it in years. And since it’s a question I’m frequently asked, I wear Coco Mademoiselle perfume. Oh yeah, I also have a mild obsession with gluten-free brownies and the Tealeaf Salad from b*Star.
