Dawno is an empty nest mom, with a son in the Army and a daughter in college. She is also a life long SF fan (well, almost - started reading SF in 2nd grade), an occasional blogger, and is addicted to making beaded stuff which you might see at SF conventions in California (BayCon, FOGCon, LosCon), where she sells them at the Dawno's Beaded Lanyards & Jewelry booth.
