Dawn Rae Downton is the author of the memoirs Diamond and Seldom. She’s published widely in literary magazines and in 2004 won two of Canada’s top honors for short fiction: she was a finalist for the Journey Prize, and her work ran in Toronto Life's prestigious Summer Fiction issue. Appearing frequently in Canada's national magazines and newspapers, she's also a journalist with expertise and a special interest in security and privacy. (But hey, she’s also written on Bill Clinton’s memoirs, on who doesn't love Oprah, on how not to get hit by lightning, and how to get those pesky ants out of your house every spring.) Dawn Rae was born in St. John’s, Newfoundland, and now lives on Nova Scotia’s south shore.
