In Dawn's Memory

I am Dawn Thompson's sister. Dawn's recent passing was a terrible, unexpected shock to both family and fans alike. I am happy to join the blog to keep my sister's memory alive, and toward that effort, I am working on transcribing one of her earlier works, Drake's Lair, which never had a real release, so that her fans that missed it before will soon be able to find it. Dawn wanted to be an author all her life. I remember when we were children, she would color pages in a coloring book and make up stories as she went along to amuse me. Although her career was cut way to short, by her untimely passing, I am so happy that she was able to realize her dream. Dawn did not want to be forgotten, and judging from the wonderful overwhelming response from her many fans, I'm sure that she won't be. She has left us other works which will also be released and her many fans will have those to look forward to as well. Diane Thompson
