About Me


Dawn Byrne

Originally from Philadelphia, PA, I crossed the bridge into southern NJ where I now live with my patient husband and our pet turtle. 
I love reading, and enjoy writing children's picture books. Several of my nonfiction pieces have been published in CHICKEN SOUP FOR THE SOUL books and other publications
I'm the Juliette Writers’ Group facilitator and lead a critique group through the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. 
You may find me picking up trash in a park or giving away plants at a green fair while striving to leave a teeny carbon footprint. Practicing archery keeps me focused when I'm not hovered over a book or with my family and friends.
