Let’s get you introduced to everyone, shall we?!
My name is Tina Dawson and I go by the pen name T.M. Dawson. I am a Paranormal Romance Author with one book out called The Hunter A Nightingale Novel. I am currently working as an ESL teacher and am also Deaf/Hard of Hearing. I use what’s left of my hearing and hearing aids to teach. I am currently pursuing an MA certification in Teaching Technical Communication and working on book 2 and another series with a small publishing company.
What prompted you to pursue a career as a writer?
I read R.A. Salvatore’s The Dark Elf trilogy and from there I knew I was meant to be an Author. Of course the paranormal romance part came after reading Laurell K Hamilton and Karen Marie Moning.
Do you have any special writing habits?
I tend to have to have a series bible in excel. I need document what goes on in my books to give me an idea. I don’t stick with an outline mostly but I need it to show a general direction. I also like to use Pinterest to find homes and stuff my characters would live or have. I am also obsessed with anything paranormal and Celtic. I tend to draw sigils on all of my writing documents. I am a hereditary witch/Celtic pagan.
When you write a new book, do you already have the whole story in mind or do you elaborate it along the way?
I usually know what I want to write. But I will elaborate along the way to fill in the blanks.
In your opinion what is the best book you have written? What’s your favourite book ever?
I think the Hunter was a good book. But I think that my newer books will be great too! My favorite book ever is the books in the highlander series by Karen Marie Moning. Love me some time travel and scottish romance.
How do you feel after writing a book?
Excited, worried that people will hate it, relieved, sad, and then happy. It’s a grief process for me.

The Hunter is a book about a woman named Nessa. She is a tattoo artist who angers a demon and in turn has help and the eventual love of a half demon named Ailes. Together they must come together to combat a demon stalker and learn about themselves and the world around them.
Blurb: Nessa McRae’s life is all she could ask for; a well-earned reputation as a kick-ass tattoo artist with a list of clients out the door. All she ever wanted was to be able to pay her rent and eat in the same month, and she’s finally found that stability. Little does she know, she has an admirer… a inhuman monster hell-bent on devastating her. Enter Ailes MacGillvary; an alpha male and all Nightingale—a paranormal protector of Edinburgh, Scotland. He’s tasked with guarding Nessa, but he also harbors secrets that could destroy her. Can he keep her safe—not only from the inhuman monster hot on her heels—but also from himself?

Where can we find you on socials? Do you have your own group and want to share it with us?
All the links: https://linktr.ee/t.m.dawson The link tree above has all of my social deets as well as book links. I would love more group members and stuff! I also have a patreon but have no idea how to use it and I enjoy writing little stories for my readers that would be fun canon for the book set after the events. Working on a free novella right now to offer my new and existing readers.
