Hey there, my name is Bree Dawn, and this is a little about me.
The Long Biography
I’m a writer, although I wasn’t always. As a kid, writing was torture; I hated it with every fiber of my being. But, around high school, this hatred quickly morphed into a deep desire to craft stories and explore unique worlds. I can’t pinpoint the exact moment when I knew that I wanted to be writer, but I do remember feeling late to the game because I hadn’t grown up writing stories like *everyone* else. Despite these initial worries, God continually showed me that writing was what I was supposed to be doing. I went on to finish my very first novella and, somewhere along the way, I realized that it didn’t matter if I was a writer in my childhood because God’s plan is, and always has, been bigger than mine.
I’m a story consumer. I’ve devoured stories ever since I was a little girl. Back then, those stories consisted mostly of the Nancy Drew collection and American Girl Doll novellas, which I eagerly checked out of the library on a weekly basis. However, as I got older, I started reading stories that were a little darker, like The Hunger Games, Divergent, and Unwind. This was the beginning of my long-standing love for the dystopian genre, which is only ever overshadowed by my love for all things vampires.
I’m a dreamer. Maybe it’s the moon child in me, but I really connect with the obscure-but-aesthetic vibe of being a dreamer. I’m the girl who realizes that I’m going to miss a moment long before the moment even occurs; I always have the desire to admire the moon and dance in the rain; and I think that there should be a playlist for each and every emotion, situation, and season of life.
I’m a Christian. This is truly the most important part of who I am because without God, I have no idea where I would be or what I would be doing. It is because of Him that I have found a hope to keep smiling, even in the darkest of times. He says that He loves me, and when all else fails, that will still ring true, which is enough for me.
The Short Biography
I am a voracious book dragon who believes in the power of stories. While I didn’t start writing until high school, I have always felt the most at home in other worlds. As a young girl, I constantly begged my father to let me read “one more chapter” before bedtime. This same passion now inspires me to craft dark stories with hopeful undertones for the young adults seeking a glimmer of light in this dark world. While my stories range in genre, I have a long-standing desire to consume the entire dystopian genre, which is only overshadowed by my undying love for vampires. When I’m not exploring a new plot bunny or jumping into a fictional world, I can be found listening to music, forcibly holding my cat against his will, or drafting a new post for my blog, The Long Voyage.
