Hey there, I’m

DACIA M ARNOLD

 am a bestselling author of 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.

While I was away for my second deployment, I lost my best friend to domestic violence. After her passing, I served as a victim advocate until my time in the military ended. Now, to help others, I speak out often on social media platforms and encourage victims of their own strength and inform them of options to get help.

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.
