My agents are the wonderful Polly Nolan (UK) and Sarah Davies (US) of the Greenhouse Literary Agency. www.greenhouseliterary.com
It's about the truth (?) behind events leading up to a tragedy, told via the diary of a girl who doesn't exist.
Sorry, no! Most authors can no longer do this. But I do recommend getting some good critical feedback. If you can find a critique group, that may work for you.
Unless I truly believe a manuscript is the bees knees, and that my agent will love it beyond measure, I don't give referrals. My agents are just too busy, and reading is very subjective. I'm sorry!
It really depends. Two of my books I wrote in a month (bad first drafts). The longest has taken a few years.
That's okay, most people can't! I'm a bit of a hodge-bodge because I grew up all over and moved so much. It's mostly British, with splashes of everywhere else.
Dawn. Ohhhhhh, you mean my surname? Exactly like it's spelled, and with a hard "g" like "golf". Kur-tah-g-ich.
The Dead House has a sequel e-novella out now! It's called The Dead House: NAIDA
I wrote about five, although one of those books has been written more than ten times from scratch and 23 times total (I know.)
I'm busy working on three new books!
Tough question! I've started putting together a Pinterest board of exactly that: Books I've loved. You can find it here.
Oops! How about you tweet it to me? I try to respond to all tweets (as of December 2014)

Dawn is a liver transplant survivor. When she was 25, she received the gift of life, and now she has another chance! She uses her new life to celebrate everything beautiful, write horrifying books and make as much music as she can. She would also like to pass on the joy and zest for life she is grateful to have.
Things she finds fascinating: mirrors, corridors, oddly shaped doors, balconies, forests, the weather, siblings, stickers, post-its, outsider art, art of the insane, Henry Darger, cellos, gum-wrapper chains (she makes them), dolls, heavy ornamentation, extremisms, body modification, life, death. Everything in between. Even you!
