My third author featured this month is the lovely Dawn Torrens, the sweetest woman I have ever met, positive and strong as hell,  a wonderful friend, a mother above all, and a real sister to me. She was the third author I met on Twitter, so she is another member of "the Originals" (being the last member myself :D). Tirelessly promoting other fellow authors, I thought she deserved a space in my blog series. Oh, a funny fact: Dawn is the creator of the term Tweetheart, which I also adopted later on :P And she truly is a Tweetheart.

What I love about her, apart from her beautiful personality, is the honesty in her writing, the power in her words, the feelings she is able to convey just by reading a couple of pages. Both her books in which she tells about her own journey from a very hard childhood to the woman she is today have been very well received by readers everywhere. She has a special sensitivity, so no wonder she also published a collection of poems in which she poured her heart out. But let's see more about her books little by little.


Picture
In Amelia's Story we have a detailed account of the protagonist's early childhood and teenage years. It is quite an emotional read that doesn't fail to elicit an emotive response in the reader. Knowing that this book is a memoir makes of it even more special, since we know more about the author's background. Amelia's childhood wasn't a bed of roses, but the book is written so honestly and with such positivity about the future that it is impossible not to feel for the protagonist. But I don't want to spoil things. You can read my full review here.

Amelia's Destiny is the sequel to Amelia's Story, and we follow her adventures since her teenage years until the woman she is today. This book is such an emotional ride that I found myself weeping while reading it. However, I couldn't stop reading it, and I read it in just one afternoon. Here is my full review.

Picture
Heart and Mind is a collection of poems that is also in my list of books to be read. However, having read some of the poems on Dawn's website, I am sure that it will be quite a lovely and emotional read.

And that's it why I love Dawn so much as an author. Because her writing is honest and comes straight from the heart. Because she doesn't hesitate to pour her heart out in every line. Because her writing is so full of power and positive energies that it is a pleasure to read.
