A country girl born and bred, Dawn 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.
