About Dawn

Dawn Dugle, Best-Selling Author

Dawn Dugle is an energetic, optimistic truth-teller who is also incredibly stubborn when it comes to looking on the bright side. She has been focused on positive storytelling ever since she could write

She has a lot in common with soap opera goddess Susan Lucci - both were nominated for multiple Emmys. Unlike Lucci, Dawn hasn’t won her Emmy - yet. She has brought home 67 awards for storytelling, including an Edward R. Murrow award for digital news excellence.

During the pandemic lockdown, Dawn turned her storytelling superpower toward writing books. She is an Amazon best-selling author and creator of the Flamingo Cove books, a romantic comedy series with a body count.

In her spare time, Dawn is a karaoke goddess and the personal minion for her cat Gabriel, who secretly thinks he’s a dog.



Don't let the cute face fool you. Gabe is secretly plotting to take over the world. Trouble is, he's only 12 pounds, cuddly, and doesn't like to go outside. Makes it hard to get that "world-domination plot" going.
