Dawn Burdett is an award-winning Software Developer and Children’s Book Author on a mission to simplify the intricate world of coding and technology and make it not only fun, but accessible to the young.
Above all, Dawn is a firm believer of the future and the up-and-coming generation that will help shape it. This is what drives her to educate children through the power of storytelling.
Born in the UK, Dawn’s affinity for the written word began early on. During grade school (while living in Germany), she distinctly remembers the moment when the creative spark officially entered her life. Her 4th grade teacher would read “Day of the Triffids,” and have his students write alternative endings. From that point forward, putting that pen down was out of the question.
Outside of writing, Dawn serves as the Chief Technical Officer at a prominent software development company. During her free time, she is a voracious reader and avid drummer. Writing and coding aside, her biggest loves, apart from her children and husband, are her furred/feathered children, a Golden Retriever (Alphee), a Labrador (Hunter), two cats (Floki and Ragnar), and three chickens (all named Gertie).
Dawn currently calls Melbourne, Australia home.
