Hey there, I’m
DACIA M ARNOLD
Science Fiction Author
am a bestselling science fiction author, specializing in adult dystopian and dark fiction. I enjoy writing main characters who are otherwise normal people with extraordinary abilities.
From a young age, my imagination lent itself to short stories and poems.
I moved every three years since I was born, as with most military families, which allowed me to reinvent myself with new friends. Later in life, I followed my father’s boot prints by joining the Army. I spent fifteen months working in Baghdad Emergency room where I witnessed both horrors and miracles.
In times of trauma, I found myself having to disassociate from the gore and shock of situations to preserve my mental health. As a science fiction author, I often find it cathartic to reassociate these traumas into fiction in order to process my experiences at war.
I use a foundation of strong values to guide others on their own writing journey. My ultimate goal is to create a stronger literary community of kind and confident writers.
A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture, and transform.”
