Dawn Avalon (1973) grew up in Groningen, where she still lives..  During the first 3 years of her life, she lived aboard her parents ship, Capri.       From the age of eighth Gerda began writing some short stories. Later, in her teens these became brief excerpts of books she wanted to write in the future.

The Frost-Flower Artists is one of those books ...
Late in 2006 she finished 'A Circular Room’ and sent it to several publishers. Without result. An employee of one of those publishers, with whom Dawn had e-mail contact, gave the advice to consider trying LuLu Enterprises.

In 2008  she  took on her book 'A forgotten Past'. . In September of 2008 she  published a first edition of this book via LuLu. A regular publisher was not  approached (anymore).
Between 2009 and 2010 the writer got the inspiration and help to start the book Caught between Light and Darkness with the first solo title (I am who I am). A story about a young woman who is not believed in what she is experiencing. In the months that she let this spiritual book rest, she began the adventure book Key of Poseidon ...
