About the author

Katie Dawn is a native-born Montana author who rejoices in the beauty of deep crimson sunsets reflecting off the snow-capped Rocky Mountains, and breathing in the unmistakable essence of a horse's lather. Being raised in small-town Montana forged both hardship and joy in abundance and allowed a vibrant backdrop for earning her English degree at MSU. Although literature classes battered her with the workload, creative writing courses danced new life throughout her spirit and set her sights on putting pen to paper to scribe depictions of all that she's made of. In her memoir series, blog, and short essays, she writes with a raw authenticity that engages the irreverent and sacred potential of femininity, balanced by a depth of vulnerability that truly resonates throughout a reader's soul. Such written meanderings have healed broken places within her own heart and those of her readers. The depth of character with which she writes about hardship is met by an equal measure of sharp wit and hilarity. Her ability to elevate a reader to new heights on both ends of the pendulum is spectacular. Her most tenacious love is shown toward her husband, the two boys they ushered into the world, her family, and a sisterhood of close friends. Should you be out in Montana and pass her by, tip your hat with a smile. Or, connect with her at katiedawnbooks.com.
