Dawn Merriman writes creepy small town murder mysteries, but nothing too graphic. (She likes to sleep at night.) She grew up on a small pig farm in Northeast Indiana and spent her teenage years sitting on her bedroom floor, scribbling stories into notebooks. Today, Dawn lives on another small farm with her husband and young adult children. You can often find her with muck boots on her feet and a story in her head. She enjoys animals, auctions, reading, snorkeling and writing small-town murder mystery novels.
