About Dawn

Dawn Simon writes middle-grade novels with humor and heart--and often a bit of magic! A special education and library paraeducator, she enjoys working with kids and seeing what books they're reading. Some of her favorite things are books, sunny beaches, vanilla lattes, cookies, dogs, and whales.


Two of Dawn's novels were finalists in the Pacific Northwest Writers Association Literary Contest, and one was a finalist in the San Francisco Writing Contest. She lives with her family--including one dog and ten chickens--on an island near Seattle. Dawn is a member of SCBWI and The Authors Guild. She is represented by Jennie Kendrick at Red Fox Literary.
