Now here are 2 wonderful writers you should know who also have Meet My Characters posts on their respective blogs:
Dawn Singh always found comfort in books as a child and from a young age and could be found reading or writing. Her first attempt at fiction was at 10 years old and was entitled, Hippo In The House. Dawn wrote and illustrated the book about a little girl, who returns from home to find a Hippo in her bath tub and the trouble they get into trying to return the Hippo to the zoo .This was a turning point as Dawn decided that from that moment on the only thing she wanted to do was write, she also decided that she would never be an illustrator as her drawing skills were somewhat lacking to say the least.
Fast forward a few years after school and Dawn married, had three children and completed a degree in counseling and psychology. She returned to writing in 2005 when she had an overwhelming flood of ideas for several stories and began writing immediately at every opportunity. Dawn’s first book, Regina: The Monster Inside is the first in a trilogy. Dawn is heavily influenced by YA novels, Sci-fi and fantasy, being a huge fan of the genres. Dawn currently resides with her husband, two daughters, son and cat Mario in West Yorkshire in the UK.
Jennifer Lynn Powell Reynolds is a native of North Alabama. She has a Master of Fine Arts degree from National University and a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of North Alabama. Writing has always been a large part of her life. She has worked on a number of different projects throughout her life, but her focus had mainly been on her education. Now that that part of her life is over, she is focusing on her writing career and loving every moment of it. Aside from spending her days immersed in the fictional worlds she creates, she works part time at Stained Glass Artistry.
