My Story

Dawn Merriman writes creepy small town murder mysteries, but nothing too graphic. (She likes to sleep at night.)
   Dawn Merriman grew up a small town farm girl on a small time pig farm in Indiana. She spent her young adulthood sitting on her bedroom floor scribbling stories into notebooks. She won the "Northeast Indiana Young Writers" award as a sophomore in high school.
   After battling severe depression, she wrote her debut novel "How Murder Saved My Life" as therapy. Mixing her love of murder mysteries and farming with climbing out of the darkness, she continues to write twisty thrillers. 
   Dawn Merriman currently  lives on a small farm with her husband and college-age children. You can often find her with muck boots on her feet, or barefoot, and a story in her head. She is currently working on new murder thrillers. She enjoys animals, auctions, reading, snorkeling and writing small town murder mystery novels.
