the award-winning author whose pen name is Dawn Eden, is an assistant professor of dogmatic theology at Holy Apostles College and Seminary in Cromwell, Connecticut. Her books include Remembering God's Mercy: Redeem the Past and Free Yourself from Painful Memories, The Thrill of the Chaste, and My Peace I Give You: Healing Sexual Wounds with the Help of the Saints.
Born into a Jewish family in New York City, Dawn lost her faith as a teenager and became an agnostic. During her twenties, in the 1990s, she was a rock journalist in New York City, interviewing oldies artists such as Brian Wilson and Harry Nilsson. She went on to work in editorial positions for the New York Post and the Daily News.
At the age of thirty-one, Dawn underwent a dramatic conversion to Christianity that ultimately led her to enter the Catholic Church. Her books have been featured in the New York Times and L'Osservatore Romano, and on EWTN.
Dawn received her doctorate in sacred theology (S.T.D.) summa cum laude from the University of St. Mary of the Lake in 2016, becoming the first woman in the university's history to earn a canonical doctorate. Her dissertation was on recent Magisterial teaching on redemptive suffering. Prior to joining the faculty at Holy Apostles, she taught at St. Mary's College, Oscott, the seminary of the Archdiocese of Birmingham, England.
