"Wow! Dawn Darling? Are you a detective? Superhero? Burlesque star?!"
Erm, the answer is no. I am a super socially awkward weirdo who never wanted her small town to know what thoughts and characters lived in her head. (Spoiler alert, that cat was out of the bag when I stood in front of my classmates sophomore year and read an excerpt of New Moon for a project).
I'm a bipolar mom of two who is a professional at disassociating, and building wild fantasies in my head while I do it. I say way too many curse words and start every day with six shots of blonde espresso over ice without fail. Don't worry, I have ADHD too, so the caffeine makes me normal, not crazy eyed.
I grew up in a small town who encouraged women to become a nurse or a teacher and, while those are valiant careers full of men and women stronger than I'll ever be, I was quick to say fuck that. When I was pushed to use my degree in creative writing to work at the local newspaper, can you guess what I said then? If your answer was fuck that, you were right.
I write adult fantasy/paranormal romance with dark themes (always check the TWs) and characters with as many personalities as me.
I live in the USA and my dream home state is Washington, but my husband refuses to move there because he says he's afraid I'll find a coven of vampires and run away with them. He's probably right. So, I'll settle for Alaska where the sun can only touch me for 6 months out of the year and I'll have all the snow my heart could desire.
Do you think your weirdness will mesh with mine? Hit me up any time! I love new friends.
P.S. Don't be offended if it takes me a while to answer. I probably read your message and responded in my head.
