Hi my name is Dawn Torrens. I am a proud mother, wife, daily blogger and of
course, author! I live in Birmingham UK with my husband and beautiful 2 yr old
princess (she is my heart and inspires me each and every day)! I first started
writing when I was 9 yrs old – poems mainly as I found this a great way of
expressing myself, I kept a journal with my poems in for many years but sadly
along the way it was lost. I am an avid reader and have read hundreds of books
over the years, again I was young around 7 years old when I started to take
reading very seriously indeed!

My first book is called “Amelia’s story” which is a tragic true story (my
story) which I have written for my beautiful daughter for her to read when she
is much older so she can better understand the long hard road I had to travel
before I got to where I am today.

My likes include: Reading, writing, interior design, jogging, good food, good
wine, spending quality time with my family, making a difference, helping others
to believe in themselves, and making the most of every single minute of every
single day…

A favorite quote:

In the end its not the amount of breaths we take, but the moments that take our
breath away – Unknown Author

 

 

 

This is a powerful true story of one young girl’s struggle to survive the care system during the 70s, and 80s. Amelia has one wish and that’s to make it through to adulthood, however the obstacles placed before her are proving to hard to bare. She starts to wonder about the peace and finality of her own death. Amelia can see no light at the end of the tunnel, she just wants to hold her own destiny in her own hands, but adulthood was so far way she could not even catch a glimpse of her dream.

 

 

 

 

 

Dawn’s Causes:

Barnardos (http://barnardos.org.uk) This charity does the most incredible work,
it was founded in 1866 by Thomas John Barnardo a truly inspirational man, his
main aim was to transform lives of vulnerable children and young people. Today
it has grown and branched out to all areas such as fostering and adoption. so
his dream was fulfilled, his work is still being carried out today in his great
name.

NSPCC (http://nspcc.org.uk). A truly amazing man called Benjamin Waugh founded the
NSPCC in London in 1884 – his charity has now helped over 10 million children
in the UK. Wow can you imagine all those children neglected in some way,
physically or mentally? There will always be children who need our help, there
will always be children suffering in silence? So that is why I support these
charities to help in any way I can. If I can make just one child’s life better
then I have made a difference. Benjamin Waugh was hailed “a child’s champion”

One Response to D.G. Torrens

  1. Hello Dawn. Like your profile and the two charity causes are my favourites too. You sound a very dynamic ‘on-the-go’ person. Well done. I just discovered this site and it encourages me that even though most authors write for the joy of it (not the slim chance of earning money) but also willing to give back. I think I need to address that in some way. Thanks :~)
