Meet Dawne Prochilo… writer and author extraordinaire

Where to begin when talking about myself? This used to come easy for me… like when I was in college ten years ago and in my psychology class we had to write our own obituary. Mine, as memory recalls, stated I was a best selling author, mother of three, wife and daughter. So far I’m right on with my future.

Mother of three, add in a new grandson, a wife, a daughter and author. The only word missing is the best-selling. Now granted, I do have 12 books out with four more under contract and oodles of WIP’s on paper, in the computer and in my head… and I do have one book that is out-selling all the others, but what else can I add to that obituary now that I didn’t know about then?

I was a contributing writer to USA Today on the Fall of 2011, i write reviews for adult toys, I have hundreds of online articles about sex, marriage and relationship advice floating the Internet waves and I do a weekly radio segment (in which the DJs call me Dirty Dawne) and I’m the promotions director for a publisher.

If anyone had told me my future and said I would be adding the above mentioned categories and job tasks to a resume, I would have laughed, chuckled and snorted a ‘yeah right’. But guess what? I have accomplished those tasks and I have many more years ahead of me in this industry.

On my writing resume I have erotic romance author, romance author, web content writer and a slew of other titles… so what makes me so prolific with my writing abilities and styles? I love to challenge myself, my mind and my creativity. To say I am proud of my career is an understatement. I am quite pleased with what I have fulfilled and contributed to the writing world. Granted, I am not a JK Rowling or Stephenie Meyer… I am Dawne Prochilo. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Every writer started somewhere. Every author got rejected. Every author is living their dream. I am no exception.

  4. Hi Dawne, great to learn more about you. I may have to ask you about a few of those toys…That obit thing, one of my ninth grade teachers made us write one for an assignment. I think I owned a fancy restaurant. Good luck on achieving the bestseller list.
