YA Fantasy Author Kyra Dawson


I think writing was my very 1st true love. When I look back at my life, writing is the only thing that ever made me feel wholly myself. Writing fed my love of all things fantasy.

I love dragons and unicorns, valkyries and vampires, and I believe in magic.

The idea of reincarnation is fascinating to me.

Dark themes and tortured souls are infinitely interesting. Why do the characters we love do the things they do?
I cheer for the heroes, their friends, the underdogs, and sometimes even the villains.

What is better than a beautiful jumble of words that when you read them you can feel your throat close up with  emotion?

On my bookshelves I have Tolkien, Harry PotterDragons of Pern, C.S. Lewis, Thomas Hardy — I absolutely adore Far from the Madding Crowd — Anne Rice and of course, Game of Thrones. Finish your books Mr. George R.R. Martin!

I’m never happier than when I’m writing stories.

I live in my imagination.

So thank you for spending your time with my words. And thank you for your votes, likes, comments, encouragement, and support. I’m inspired by all of them.

New posting schedule coming soon. 🙂

the-beautiful-forbidden-cover-VII The Beautiful Forbidden is an exciting new dark fantasy adventure by author Kyra Dawson that taps into your mythic memory and sweeps you into a world both magical and monstrous.

“All I want to do is forget, but my daemons and the gods won’t let me.”

17 year old Meruself brought death and suffering to Norngard, a world where once none existed. Now exiled, shunned, and withering under the weight of her shame and regret, a terrible beast pursues Meruself’s every step.
Presented with a fateful choice, Meruself accepts a quest that will threaten her survival, endanger all those she loves, and lead her down a path into the dark unknown to set things right, and face the very thing she fears the most.
As the Dark Reaping closes in, Meruself begins to understand that embracing her darkest fears may be the only way she can ever go home again.
Journey to the realm of Norngard, home of the Norns, a place of mystery, magic and myth.
The adventure begins in the haunted Hella Wood…
