unlikely of men, Nathan Everstone, whose father not only had a part in her

undercover as a lady’s companion named Elle Stoneburner at one of her father’s
opulent hotels in the mountains of Maine—the one she’d always loved best and
always hoped to own one day, Everston. The one thing she doesn’t like about the
situation is that her ex-fiancé is in the area and is set on marrying someone

graduate of Taylor University with a degree in Christian Education, and a
former bookseller at Barnes & Noble, Dawn Crandall didn’t begin writing
until her husband found out about her long-buried dream of writing a book.
Without a doubt about someday becoming traditionally published, he encouraged
her to quit her job in 2010 in order to focus on writing her debut novel, The Hesitant Heiress. It didn’t take her
long to realize that writing books was what she was made to do. Dawn is
represented by Joyce Hart of Hartline Literary.
Apart from writing books, Dawn is also a first-time mom to a precious little
boy (born March 2014) and also serves with her husband in a pre-marriage mentor
program at their local church in Northeast Indiana.
Dawn is a member of Romance Writers of America, American Christian Fiction
Writers, secretary for the Indiana ACFW Chapter (Hoosier Ink), and associate
member of the Great Lakes ACFW Chapter.
The Everstone Chronicles is Dawn’s first series with Whitaker House. All three
books composing the series were semifinalists in ACFW’s prestigious Genesis
Writing Contest, the third book going on to become a finalist in 2013.
