Meet Dawn Brotherton, a talented author, owner of Blue Dragon Publishing, and a member of GSCCC’s Board of Directors. Blue Dragon Publishing, located in Williamsburg, recently became a sponsor of the 2023 Cookie Classic Run, and we give many thanks for their support of our highly anticipated event which is coming up on January 14, 2023!
Dawn is an award-winning author and has been a featured speaker at writing and publishing seminars. Last weekend, she brought her literary talents to Camp Skimino in Williamsburg through a Girl Scout workshop for Daisies, Brownies, and Juniors titled, “The Author in You.” During the workshop, Dawn helped Girl Scouts in kindergarten through fifth grade discover their abilities as storytellers and illustrators. At the event, the group was inspired by a reading of one of Dawn’s own books, “If I Look Like You,” a tale about the value of individuality and friendship. At the end, each girl took home a book signed uniquely for them!
When it comes to being an exceptional writer, Dawn said she draws from her experience as a retired US Air Force Colonel, a softball coach and Girl Scout leader. Along with “If I Look Like You” for younger kids and a few adult titles, she has also written four middle school level books, “Trish’s Team,” “Margie Makes a Difference,” “Nicole’s New Friend,” and “Tammy Tries Baseball.” The four books are all parts of the “Lady Tigers” series, a series about a girls’ fastpitch softball team with messages that encourage young female athletes to reach for the stars in the games they love. As a mother of two female athletes and former Girl Scouts, Dawn is intent on “playing like a girl,” which, to her, means playing with determination, teamwork, sportsmanship and most of all, a love for what you do.
Fondly remembered “First Class” Girl Scout alum and longtime GSCCC staff member.
