Dawn Gena


Every breath is a word. Every thought is a story. These are the words I live and love by. Much to the exasperation of my friends and family I love to write. Fortunately, they put up with my wacky ways and read anything I throw in front of them and love me enough to give their honest opinion. I hope you will to.

Whether you just stopped by my page out of curiosity or downloaded one of my books, thank you. Hope you come back for more.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up mainly in the southwest region of the United States. Even though some neighbors are miles apart I still felt more warmth from the people there than when crowded together with millions on the tiny island of Manhattan, New York. I hope that I'm able to bring that same southwestern hominess to my characters no matter where they live.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing in grade school. As soon as I learned how to read, I knew I had stories to tell too.
