Author Emily Dawn #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

I’m a mom of four, three boys and one badass baby girl (obviously, she’s got three older brothers she’s gotta be tough). I’m a voracious reader, everything from the classics to brand new indie authors. Aside from my love of reading and writing I also have a baking business I run. I do everything from birthday cakes to wedding cakes to cinnamon rolls and pies.



Have you always wanted to become an author?

I wrote frequently when I was a teenager. My parents gave me their old typewriter and I went to town. I forgot all about my love of writing in college and grad school but recently re-discovered it. Not to be super millennial here but my therapist suggested writing as way to do something just for me. When I started writing my first book I didn’t know if I’d actually try to publish it or just let it hang out in the depths of my computer.



What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I’m inspired by so many things. I can’t pinpoint the exact thing that inspired my current series.


What are you working on now?

Right now I’m working on Sanctuary Book 2 of the Lenna Blakely Series. I’m also working on a paranormal romance which is as of now untitled. I’m also working on a dark contemporary reverse harem romance tentatively titled Shattered Starfire. I’m hoping to have two of them released before the end of the year.



Do you have any quirks while writing?

I don’t know if it’s a quirk but I make playlists for each book I’m working on. I also carry a big spiral notebook everywhere I go in case I’m up in my head and think of a good line of dialogue or a scene to write it down so I don’t forget.


What are your hopes for the future?

I hope that my books are read and enjoyed. A best seller would be nice but when I decided to go all in on this writing thing I said if even one person liked my book I’d be happy and that’s still true for me.


Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

I’ve found that there are a ton of supportive indie authors out there. I reached out randomly to a couple authors who went above and beyond when I was looking for beta readers and needed help with other random things. So, I would tell new authors to not be afraid to reach out.


Do you have anything to say to your readers?

I just want to say thank you for reading my book. I’m so appreciative of your support and encouragement.
