Brenda B. Dawson is an author with a gift she readily shares with her readers. During her early childhood years, Dawson spent much time alone on her family’s farm in Papineau, Illinois. It was during those lonely years that she developed an imagination that would make her an accomplished writer.
Dawson always loved to tell stories, and attempted writing in her early adult years, but the realization of her dream would take a backseat to raising her family and her pursuit of a professional career in retail sales management. After she retired, Dawson finally had the time needed to put the stories she has been saving over the years onto paper…and we are so glad that she did.
Dawson was quoted as saying,
“I’ve been writing Season of Regret (her second novel) for 30 years. It is only now that I have the life experience to give the story the depth and meaning it deserves.”
Dawson's breakout novel, Season of Magenta, has a smart and cleaver story plot that comes alive through her witty and realistic characters. However, it is her mastery of words that sets Dawson apart from many other authors. Her writing flows and captures the attention of her readers through her imagery.
Dawson is working on her third novel, The Indian Blanket, which promises to hit the market later this fall.
Dawson was never able to stay in the mold set for woman of the late 1950's early 1960's. In her personal life, she infiltrated the male dominated world of management in retail sales. Although she became successful in this man’s world, her heart was always writing. Dawson is a story teller whose life experiences lend themselves to the development of her characters. The female protagonists in her work are innately strong woman on a life fulfilling journey. The reader is able to live through these eras with the characters as they become.

I did not know what to expect in Indian Blanket, and was pleasantly surprised to find an interesting blend of characters who come together on a journey in life lessons. The book description talks about the main characters, but Dawson introduces many characters and they all have significant contributions to the story. Indian Blanket is a glimpse into the human psyche as seen through the eyes of several dynamic characters. A Good read.
