I grew up in Southeast Asia. My first experience with America was when I was six years old. Sometimes I amuse my friends by telling them stories of my first impressions of this country (clean bathrooms, Toy Story, Taco Bell, getting lost in department stores).

My family moved to California when I was eleven and completely changed the course of my life. On the outside I'm a well-adjusted American adult, but in all honesty some days I still wake up to the sound of the grass being cut by machetes.

I have traveled a fair amount and lived in four separate countries. I see the world very differently from most people that I know. And because I am an analytical introvert I try to understand everything in my life. I pour this into my writing.

E.B. Dawson Probably Margaret Hale and John Thornton (North and South). But Esther Summerson and Alan Woodcourt (Bleak House) are a very close second!

I am currently revising it so that it lines up a little better with changes I made in the second book (and I am glad I caught it early enough where I could do that!). I hope to re-release it in September!

I would recommend waiting because this first book will be important in setting up the trilogy, and I want to make sure you get the right first impression. And when the time comes I would be happy to replace your e-copy with the updated version! (less)

Strange Waters by E.B. Dawson
"Anything from this great collection of writers goes instantly onto my bookshelf.
Including this fantastic Anthology. Check it out for yourself! "
E.B. Dawson is 30% done with Mansfield Park: So. Much. Symbolism. I remember the first time I read this that I felt like I didn't fully understand what was happening at Sotherton. Now the symbolism there is blatantly obvious to me.

Sometimes I feel like fantasy rehashes the same tropes over and over. Deck Matthews' work is fresh and original. I was hooked from the opening scene with the Drifter fighting desperately against the Demon who has been relentlessly hunting him. Caleb ...more

“You will never overcome yourself if you always excuse yourself.”
E.B. Dawson, The Creation of Jack

“I saw disillusionment. I saw pain, bitterness, anger--all things I understood very well. But then I saw what was underneath all that. Those were just layers; they weren't the heart of who you are.”
E.B. Dawson, The Creation of Jack

“I know who you are, Miss Robson. And I know the terror you will unleash if I don't stop you. I have spent my whole life preparing for you.'

'You're not making any sense.'

'That's because you don't know everything yet. And even though it's tempting for me to justify myself...I will risk being misunderstood. Because I have this opportunity to stop it all before it begins.”
E.B. Dawson, The Citizen

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”
C.S. Lewis

“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.”
C.S. Lewis

“Don't use words too big for the subject. Don't say infinitely when you mean very; otherwise you'll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite.”
C.S. Lewis

“But no one except Lucy knew that as it circled the mast it had whispered to her, "Courage, dear heart," and the voice, she felt sure, was Aslan's, and with the voice a delicious smell breathed in her face.”
C.S. Lewis, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

“Suppose... suppose we have only dreamed and made up these things like sun, sky, stars, and moon, and Aslan himself. In that case, it seems to me that the made-up things are a good deal better than the real ones. And if this black pits of a kingdom is the best you can make, then it's a poor world. And we four can make a dream world to lick your real one hollow.”
C.S. Lewis, The Silver Chair
