About the Author
Dawn Ringling graduated from Biola University in 1985 with a degree in communications/creative writing. She was born a writer; in fact, she barely knew her ABCs when she scribbled her first stories and poems on the back of church bulletins, grocery lists, and any other scratch paper she could find. Until 1990, she was the manager of publications for Biola, where she helped to develop a fledging advertising department into an award-winning producer of college promotional and alumni materials. A mother of three and a full-time writer, Ringling lives in Minnesota, where, in her free time, she and her family spend summers at their lake cabin and winters skiing and skating and truly embracing the beauty of the Midwest.
