A country girl born and bred, USA Today Bestselling AuthorDawn Luedecke has spent most of her life surrounded by horses, country folk, and the wild terrain of Nevada, Idaho and Montana. As a child she would spend many afternoons reading books, and watching western and romance classics. When she grew up she decided to leave the quiet country life for a chance to find adventure by serving a successful tour in the United States Coast Guard. During that time she found her very own alpha male (and soul mate), and started a family and writing career. She holds an Associates in Business Management with the University of Phoenix and a Bachelors in Early Childhood education from Ashford University. When not enjoying the outdoors with her family, she enjoys writing historical and contemporary romance.
