One of the Amazing Authors attending will be 

Nyrae Dawn

Writing has always been Nyrae Dawn’s passion. There have been times in her life where she wasn’t able to chase that dream the way she desired, but she always found her way back to telling stories.

One of her loves has always been writing about teens. There’s something so fresh and fun about the age that she loves exploring. Her husband says it’s because she doesn’t want to grow up. She doesn’t think that’s such a bad thing and luckily for her, he doesn’t either.

Nyrae gravitates toward character-driven stories. She loves going on emotional journeys with characters whether it be reading or writing. And yes, she’s a total romantic at heart and proud.

Nyrae resides in sunny Southern California with her husband (who still makes her swoon) and her two awesome kids.

When she’s not with her family, you can be pretty sure you’ll find her with a book in her hand or her laptop and an open document in front of her.

She writes for Entangled Publishing, Grand Central Publishing and is self-published.

Nyrae is represented by Jane Dystel of Dystel and Goderich Literary Management.

Ms. Dawn’s Top 5 Fav Things to do in her Spare Time 

1.Spend time with my family. I have two girls, ages nine and five and they are so cool. Both are so different from each other and I get something different out of spending time with the older than I do the younger and the other way around. My youngest is a tomboy who loves Spiderman and sports, but she also likes painting her nails and playing in make-up more than my older one. My oldest is more of a girlie-girl, but she is also in love with playing on the computer. I never get tired of being with my husband either. We’ve been together since we were teenagers and still laugh together daily.  

2.Read!!! I am a huge reader. I read every night before bed. It’s how I wind down. My day doesn’t feel complete unless I read at least a little bit. I can’t imagine my life without books! 

3.Hanging out with my friends. It can be something as easy as coffee and a chat, movies, shopping or anything. I just love to be around my friends. They make me happy. One of my favorite things to do with this is go to LA and watch live music—especially smaller indie bands or singers.  

4.Travel. I haven’t been a lot of places, but there are SO many places I want to travel to. My dream vacations are to places like Ireland and Scotland. It will happen one day soon. In the US, I really want to go to Maine!  

5.Scrapbook. I am obsessed with taking pictures of my family and at activities I go to. It’s fun to decorate them and make each picture more special.  

Now, I didn’t add writing in this because you said spare time, but I have to say, even though writing is my job, I love it.  It feels good putting words on paper.  I’m so lucky to get to do it.
