Dawn Brookes



Dawn Brookes is the author of Rachel Prince mystery series combining a unique blend of murder, cruising and medicine with a touch of romance.

British author Ms Brookes has a 39 year nursing pedigree and takes regular cruise holidays for research purposes! She brings these passions along with a Christian background and a love of clean crime to her writing.

The surname of her protagonist is in honour of her childhood dog, 'Prince', who used to put his head on her knee while she lost herself in books.

Bestselling author of Hurry up Nurse: memoirs of nurse training in the 1970s and Hurry up Nurse 2: London calling, Dawn worked as a hospital nurse, midwife, district nurse and community matron across a thirty-nine year year career. Before turning her hand to writing for a living, she had multiple articles published in professional journals and co-edited a nurse textbook.

She grew up in Leicester, later moved to London and Berkshire but now lives in Derbyshire. Dawn holds a bachelors degree with Honours and a Masters degree in education.

Writing across genres, Dawn also writes for children.

Dawn has a passion for nature and loves animals, especially dogs. Animals will continue to feature in her children's books as she believes caring for animals and nature helps children to become kinder human beings.
