Biography

Dawn Garcia is a writer, screenwriter, magazine editor, and lifestyle personality. While she started in makeup and special effects (worked in production on Steven Spielberg's "Lost World" and with Placido Domingo at the LA Opera) it was writing that stole her heart. Beginning the moment she could put pen to paper, she decided to leave makeup and focus on writing in 1998 where she was working as an advertising coordinator at BET Network. Her first writing opportunity came in 1998 with a chance encounter with Francis Ford Coppola who encouraged her to enter a Zoetrope: All story writing competition.

She entered her first short piece of fiction in 1998, was accepted into the writing program and has since gone on to write more short fiction, a book, several screenplays, create several TV series, write a TV pilot, and is a contributing journalist and managing editor for a multitude of print and digital lifestyle magazines. She launched her own online lifestyle and culture magazine, ATOD Magazine {A Taste of Dawn} to offer a support platform for filmmakers, artists, chefs, designers, and visionaries alike. She has published over 2,000 print and digital articles worldwide, and is directing her first film, "Spiraling".

Dawn resides in her hometown of Los Angeles with her daughter, Barcelona.
