Hello there! I'm Dawn. I am a Christ-follower who loves writing. I'm seeking an agent for my first novel (a young adult mystery) while working as a full-time PR professional, freelance writer and cofounder of The Pink Typewriter Project, an initiative to make a difference in the world by promoting positive thinking, gratitude, and service to others. (Check us out at ThePinkTypewriterProject.com.) I blog regularly about my faith journey and life in general.
