Dawn O’Porter lives in Los Angeles with her husband Chris, her two boys Art and Valentine, and her cat Lilu and dog Potato.
Dawn started out in TV production but quickly landed in front of the camera, making numerous documentaries that included immersive investigations of Polygamy, Size Zero, Childbirth, Free Love, Breast Cancer and the movie Dirty Dancing. Further TV work included This Old Thing, a prime-time Channel 4 show celebrating the wonders of vintage clothing.
Dawn’s journalism has appeared in multiple publications and she was the monthly columnist for Glamour magazine for three years. She is now a full-time writer of six books – although she would probably have written sixteen if it weren’t for her addiction to Instagram Stories. Her last novel, The Cows, is a Sunday Times Best Seller. Her latest novel ‘So Lucky’ will be released on October 31st, 2019.
Most recently, Dawn has written the script for Especially for You, a jukebox musical using the infamous Stock Aitken and Waterman back catalogue. The show will open with a national tour in early 2020.
