About Dawn Hurley- Chapman
Dawn Chapman writes in between serving up coffee and homemade soup at her cafe in Toronto's east end. She holds an honors degree in English Language & Literature from University of Western Ontario and attended University of Toronto's School of Continuing Studies in Creative Writing. Much of her writing springs from her experience growing up in suburban Ontario, her travels, and the inspiring, off-beat people she has met. Her work is published in “Women Travel: A Rough Guide Special” and Quality Women’s Fiction (UK). In 2017 she was awarded a Toronto Arts Council grant for her novel in progress set in Yemen, “The Orphan’s Edict”.
