Dawn Day-Quinn discovered the magic of books as a child reading for hours, writing, working in the local public library through high school, and moving on to glean more through academic endeavors. She has an entrepreneurial spirit which guided her to create a major program leading to a Bachelor’s degree, an interdisciplinary Master’s degree, running her own successful design firm, followed by several positions as a college professor as she moved around the country advancing her husband’s career. She finally settled in Western Pennsylvania with her husband and four boys.
With a thirst for learning always present, she continued to study at the doctoral level in human learning, theology, and psychology. A course in multi-cultural psychology led to a study of inter-racial relationships in the Jim Crow South. Voracious research and reading formulated her first novel Silent Ties.
