“Based on a true story” is Dawn C Crouch's brand! She loves connecting unique experiences with acute observation to unearth urban legends in her own backyard.

With truth as inspiration, Dawn creates stories that are interesting and complex. Life can be pretty ominous. On the most beautiful day with the bluest sky, the subtext of danger, or at least the unknown, ripples beneath the surface. But no matter what happens, Dawn believes that Love will save the day.

A native of New Orleans, Dawn Crouch is a former dancer with Houston Ballet under the direction of James Clouser and Nicholas Polejenko. She holds a degree in political science from the University of Houston, pursued a graduate, and has written copy for a living.

The best thing to do is just start typing something out. It may be terrible but I always know that I can go back and rewrite. You can't rewrite or fix anything if nothing is there!!(less)

When writing fiction, I love that all the characters in my novels have to do what I tell them to do as if I'm some kind of powerful wizard. Sometimes the characters argue with me, but in the end, they must do what I say! As you know, this is very unlike "real life" where hardly anyone does what you ask. Maybe sometimes and for that I'm grateful!

When writing nonfiction, aka, the Garage Ballet series, I get to write the stories that I've told to my students in my classes for many years and it's so rewarding to see the "old tried and true" stories down in print. A lot of fun! When do I tell stories in ballet class? While the students are catching their breath! I've had parents and students tell me that they love my ballet classes but really appreciate the ballet stories! (less)

Look Forward!

Six months into my self-publishing experiment, I can honestly say, I'm hooked! Response to "Ballet Helps Everything!," the first in the Garage Ballet series, has been incredible. I truly appreciate your reviews and all the support for the series. "Pointe Work," the second installment, will be published in late August and pre-orders are going very well! Thank you!

Queen of Attolia is by far my favorite book of the entire series. The interplay between the characters of Gen and Irene is flawless. I have loved this book for many years now and my advice is to read The Thief first then dive into Queen of Attolia. A ...more
