About Dawn

Dawn Greenfield Ireland is the author of several award-winning novels, nonfiction books, and screenplays. To date she has 5 published nonfiction books, 14 published novels that consists of three series (cozy mystery, science fiction/fantasy, and shape-shifter), a dystopian novel set in 2086, and a sci-fi romance adventure.

Three of her nonfiction books have won awards.

Nine of her 15 screenplays (comedies, dramas, psychological supernatural horror, action adventure and science fiction), have won awards. She has also written three short scripts.

Her former day job as an award-winning technical writer (34 years) played a major role in her fiction writing – she is detailed oriented, the organizational queen of the known universe, and never misses a deadline. She writes full time in addition to editing books for authors, and coaching people through the writing process.

Dawn wrote a first draft 50K word novel in the NaNoWriMo in 26 days. Another speed demon project was adapting one of her 400+ page novels to a script in 4 days.
