Dawn Young

Dawn Young holds a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering and an MBA. Analytical and mathematically-minded, Dawn worked for years at a large aerospace company, where she read and wrote hundreds of corporate documents—none of which were titled The Little Engineer That Could or Don’t Let The Pigeon Fly the Airbus. After leaving the corporate world, Dawn’s creative spirit called her to a career in writing. She is thrilled to now be reading and writing picture books while raising her three kids, but she still manages to throw in a little math here and there. Although her passion is writing humorous picture books, Dawn’s technical education, background and experience working as an engineer have inspired her to write STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) stories as well. Dawn is an active member of SCBWI and other children's writing groups. Dawn resides in sunny Arizona with her husband, three teens and photobombing dog, Lily.
