Golden Dreg Quake
– Teen Fiction
I re-watch movies I love, gave up a two straw habit because I live in California, and can multi-task like nobody’s business. I’m always looking for the perfect chocolate chip cookie, a great vacation spot, the right amount of sun and shade, and I fall in love with people who keep it real.
My daytime powers include marketing for a non-profit while keeping up with my family and friends. Any time I am not doing any of the above, I can be found writing or wishing I was writing.
D.K. Dailey is an award-winning author (2022 IPPY Bronze winner & NEIA finalist) of a growing series in the Golden Dreg world.
Dailey has a problem: kind of like I see dead people but for writers. Good thing she fuels that creativity to build worlds and create people who do what she says-well, most of the time. She says, if she wasn’t a writer, she’d be just another nerd without a cause or direction.
Dailey’s writing journey started as a child when she began writing sci-fi short stories, a result of watching countless hours of science fiction shows with her parents. With an inborn passion for telling stories, and writing songs and poems, her hobbies erupted into a career path after she penned a play in college and then her first novel. As a writer of color living in Northern California, she’s immersed in a tapestry of culture and history that have consistently inspired and helped her pen numerous novels.
