About D.C. Harrell

Hi. I'm D.C. (Dawn Christina) Harrell, fantasy author. My stories blend together my dueling desires to explore and to come home, and adventures at the intersection of science and spirit thrill my soul. I hope they capture yours, too. #thrillyoursoul

Reading has always been my favorite form of entertainment (and education). Some stories suck me in so far that I long to take up housekeeping in their realms. I guess the next best thing to crossing the threshold into another world is creating it.

As a speculative fiction author, my first love is dragons and I began an epic fantasy in my last year of seminary, but soon set it aside to mature. It’s still ripening in the cupboard like a slow cheese. Meanwhile, many dragon shorts have emerged from their eggs. In addition to the Dragon Fairy Tales, another already-written dragon story waits impatiently to be cooked into a Twitter fiction (#witter) or Tap. The Araphel science fantasy vampire mystery series is also percolating.

I grew up in Europe and Africa. I’ve lived in the South, Northeast and Upper Midwest, but through all the moves, I always returned to Grandma in Boston. I have an undergraduate degree in biology and a Master of Divinity. These many cultures and studies nourish my imagination and so, my books and short stories.

I also write and teach spiritual practices and narrative theology. As an editor, I’ve worked on both biblical studies and fiction. The healing arts fascinate me.

I love dogs and cats, but right now I’m owned by Briscoe the Cat. My husband is a foodie, so I eat very well, but if you hand me a piece of Swiss chocolate at the right moment, I’ll be your friend for life. My daughter is a cartoonist, who consumes graphic novels for breakfast, and translates your texts for me
