about me

the short


Dawn Dais is a freelance writer and designer from Roseville, CA. Her previous books including The Sh!t No One Tells You, The Sh!t No One Tells You About Pregnancy, The Sh!t No One Tells You About ToddlersThe Sh!t No One Tells You About Baby #2 and The Nonrunner's Marathon Guide for Women were published by Seal Press, have topped best-seller lists, and have been featured by countless TV and print media sources. Her uniquely sarcastic yet inspiring tone has entertained and guided an enthusiastic core of readers towards their various ridiculous parenting and athletic goals.

Dawn's most recent book The Shit No One Tells You About Divorce will be released in 2023. The book takes readers along on her bumpy, meandering, and often absurd journey through the destruction of a life exploded by divorce as she tries to figure out what happened… and what happens next.


Dawn lives in Roseville, CA, with her two kids, one dog, four chickens (unfortunate quarantine decision), two cats, and the occasional mouse brought into the home by said cats.
