Welcome to Dawn Breaks!

the official website for

USA Today bestselling author Ariel Dawn!


Hi! I'm Ariel Dawn.

Hi! I'm Ariel Dawn! I'm a real life mermaid (seriously, ask me about my mermaid tail), cosplayer, fangirl, PA and author!

I grew up as an avid reader and a creative soul. I write mostly  plot driven paranormal romance, urban fantasy, and reverse harem, but I also write in many other genres including contemporary romance and sci-fi romance. When I'm not writing, I can be found often in costume at conventions, reading all the books (as one does), hanging out with family and friends, and playing video games and board games with my retro gamer husband.

It's been a WILD summer ya'll!!! I had a blast meeting ya'll at Flirty In Tampa, RomantiConn, and at the Jefferson Hills Library! In between signings and trips, I've been writing like Hamilton (like it's going out of style) and have been diligently getting some VERY BIG projects in order. I can't wait to tell you all about them soon!


While Getting Witchy With It took everyone by storm this past weekend, I am over the moon to announce that I WILL be attending next year as a Saturday Signing author! I'm so excited! I will be releasing my official event schedule soon, so stay tuned to see where else I'll be stopping by in 2024!
