Dahlia Donovan wrote her first romance series after a crazy dream about shifters and damsels in distress.  She prefers irreverent humour and unconventional characters.  An autistic and survivor of abuse, her life wouldn’t be complete without her husband and her collection of books and video games.  

Dahlia has worked over the years as a teacher, insurance adjuster, and even had a brief stint as the pianist in a band–very brief. She uses her experiences over the years travelling around the world and working to add spice to her stories.

An adoptee and TCK, Dahlia uses a pen name to avoid her technically unsavvy family. Her story and her novels are very much a part of herself. She’s proud to be a survivor, a writer, and one of the odd ones.

She is currently obsessed with Destiny 2, Mass Effect, books, the ukulele, rugby, tea, and attractive men.
