Dionne Washington

Biography

Born in Los Angeles, CA, I have enjoyed reading since I was a small child. As I grew older my love of books transformed into wanting to write. By that time, I had no formal training in writing stories so I just went from there. As I grew older, I began to take classes to better my writing but I continued to write even then.

Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Well I tend to spend my time writing of course, but I like reading as well.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I read the blurbs and check out the front cover. If the cover is good and the blurb makes me want to see more, I read the very beginning and then the ending to see if the main character survives. I'm a sucker for rooting for the main character.

Smashwords book reviews by Dionne Washington

  • Smashwords Style Guide on April 03, 2012

    I found this easy to understand. And the way Mark Coker often repeats himself is a big sell for me. I will use this often in preparation of my own books that I want to publish here at Smashwords.com. I give it five stars. Great job Mark!
  • Novum Aevum: The New Age on May 29, 2012

    I liked this story. It was interesting without being boring (sorry for that word). The main character was a joy to read about though I would have liked to see Elizabeth get her comeuppance at his hands instead of her escaping and the like. Great job by the way!
  • The Chronicles of Outsider: Humble Beginnings on Oct. 04, 2012

    This was a great book minus the few errors I've read. Not enough for me to stop reading it though. I liked Outsider and would have liked to see him survive instead of come back the way it/he did. Well developed character and should be given a book two. Loved it!
  • Hunting Them Gently: Book 1 (The Gently Series) on Jan. 31, 2013

    I enjoyed reading this though there were two places that had grammer errors. But all in all, a great read. I'm looking forward to the next one and I hope Alex true body does not get destroyed and that he gets it back. Again a great read!
  • Captivity on March 21, 2013

    I liked reading this. It was fresh and interesting. I could follow it with no trouble and found myself actually rooting for the MC. Great job!
  • Super Nobody (Alphas and Omegas Book 1) on Aug. 30, 2013

    Wow! What can I say. But Super Nobody was something I couldn't stop reading even if I told myself I would stop at certain chapter. The end of the chapter and I kept reading. Funny wasn't that about me? In my opinion Super Nobody is up there with Harry Potter and David Eddings' books, and from me, that's saying something. Since those are my favorite books and author. Great work on creating such a book that totally riveted me in its 'pages'.
  • Chopping Them Gently: Book 2 (the Gently Series) on Sep. 02, 2013

    I read this again and it still blew me away. I loved it. Peter/Alex is still the coolest guy around. And the way he solves mysteries, too cool! I look forward to reading more like the third book and the rest too.
  • Adam Powerhouse Episode 1: Birth of the Double Zero on Sep. 02, 2013

  • Adam Powerhouse Episode 3: School, Sports, and...Superpowers? on Sep. 02, 2013

  • Anathema on Sep. 04, 2013

    I have read this first book in this saga and found it completely good. I loved the characters and the dangers they find themselves in. And the ending was really great too. Most likely I will be purchasing book 2 soon as well. Bravo on a great story!
  • The Magaram Legends 1: Into the Unknown on Sep. 09, 2013

    A very intriguing story. Nice work. Any errors, grammar or otherwise was minor as compared with the story's readibility because even if I found any error, the next words took me back into the story. I loved this!
