About the Author:
Dawn DeAnna Wilson’s first novel, “Saint Jude,” was listed in “The Big Book of Teen Reading Lists: 100 Great, Ready-to-Use Book Lists for Educators, Librarians, Parents, and Teens” by Nancy Keane.
Originally from a small town Weaverville, near Asheville, NC, she wrote her first story when she was five and her first poem was published when she was in 8th grade. In 1986, the publication of her short story in Prism, a magazine for young authors, led to an appearance on “CBS Morning News.”
Wilson earned her bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she studied creative writing under authors Doris Betts and Bland Simpson. She earned her master’s degree in English with a concentration in creative writing from East Carolina University. Currently, the author resides in Eastern North Carolina and is a member of the NC Writers’ network.
