Featured Author Dawn Kopman Whidden


I would like to start off the next two weeks of festivities with a quick introduction. I will be featuring an amazing author Dawn Kopman Whidden. I have had the greatest pleasure of working with her for the past few weeks and reading some of the most compelling stories. 

 


Dawn's first novel was A Child is Torn, published in December 2012. Storyline: When dependable Evan Madison fails to show up for work, police are dispatched to his home. His ten-year-old son, Brad, is discovered inside, unharmed and seemingly alone. He is stoic, sitting in front of the television playing his favorite video game, Super Mario—and he’s covered in blood. s the layers of truth about Brad are systematically peeled away, you will be compelled to ask yourself, Which is the more dominate factor in contributing to who we are—NATURE or NURTURE?






Dawn's second novel Faceless was published in November 2013. Storyline: A pretty teenage girl is found dead in the woods, her face horribly mutilated. A few days later, a second girl, also strikingly beautiful, is attacked in a similar fashion. Who would do such a brutal thing—and why? Through it all, Jean and Marty must unravel a multi-layered mystery and put a face on the unseen villain, before anyone else ends up dead…and faceless.





Dawn's most recent release Stolen, published June 2014. Storyline: In the riveting mystery novel Stolen, detective Marty Keal is on leave handling personal business when he is drawn back into a case with all of the makings of a sinister event. His partner, detective Jean Whitley, is first on the scene of a horrible crime that took place in a cabin in the woods. She arrives to find an older man dead, a younger man seriously wounded and a half naked child in the back of the cabin who’s apparently been missing for 3 months. Then, the detective finds a little boy running through the woods with little clothes and barely able to communicate. 


Although all of Dawn Kopman Whidden books are not a series, you will find her main characters in each story, you do not have to read them in order.
