About Dawn Kohler and Dmkbooks.
Dawn Kohler grew up in the small town of Union, Missouri. She graduated from Truman State University in May of 2017. She studied Psychology and Disabilities Studies. She has been interested in disability since she started trying to learn American Sign Language in 4th grade. During college, Dawn became interested in advocating for people with disabilities and wrote her first children's picture books Why I Laugh, and My Extra Chromosome. Dawn copes with chronic pain from carpal tunnel syndrome and chronic migraine headaches as well as anxiety and depression. She has several other ideas in the works for other Inclusion picture books. Dawn is also very interested to know what types of disability inclusion books people are wanting to see.
Dawn also has a great passion for nature and adventure she originally started writing Stranded and Scared at the age of 12, but didn't really work on it until she was 16-years-old. Dawn like many authors uses her writing and characters to go on adventures she can't. She hopes you enjoy her books as much as she enjoyed writing them.
Dawn branded her website dmkbooks.com in August of 2016. Since then she has created a Facebook page, and WordPress blog along with the new updated site DMKbooks and Online Advocacy Resources that you are currently viewing.
