Dawn Goodwin’s twenty-year career has spanned PR, advertising and publishing, both in London and Johannesburg. A graduate of the Curtis Brown creative writing school, she loves to write about the personalities hiding behind the masks we wear every day, whether beautiful or ugly. Now a company director, what spare time she has is spent chasing good intentions, contemplating how to get away with various crimes and misdemeanours, and immersing herself in fictitious worlds. She lives in London with her husband, two daughters and a British bulldog called Geoffrey.
Dawn’s debut novel, The Accident, a domestic psychological suspense, was released in October 2017 by Aria, the commercial fiction imprint of independent publisher Head of Zeus. Following this, she has released titles The Pupil, Best Friends Forever, The Pact, and What I Never Told You. Her latest title, When We Were Young, was published by Aria in November 2022.
