I am a mom to three beautiful adult daughters and grandmother to 2 adorable children. My husband, Scott, and I have been married 30 years. We live in Chesapeake, Virginia where I work as the principal/administrator of a small preschool and elementary school. I love writing, illustrating, and designing children's books and educational material. My work has won a Dove Award, a Mom's Choice Gold Award, and Disney's I-Parenting Award. Some of my work has been taken around the world by missionaries and organizations that aid children in third world countries. My passion is to use story and pictures to make learning fun and help everyone know the love our creator has for us. I have written and/or illustrated 12 books and speak on the subjects of parenting, family, faith issues, and women issues. My books include: "The Little Pot Book Series", "Mother Goose meets Mother Nature", and "Janbatis ak Jozyann Refe".
Dawn's award winning children's book, "The Little Pot" has become the inspiration for the school vision at Central Christian Academy. Checkout the video below.
