She will never turn down an invitation to karaoke, because she is here to party but also be in bed by 8pm. Dacia’s pipe dream is to one day narrate an episode of “Drunk History” and tell the story of “The Unsinkable” Molly Brown. Until then her friends must suffer through unsolicited rehearsals. She lives in Pittsburgh with her husband, two human children, and two beagle children.
Dacia M Arnold is an Amazon Bestselling author of adult dystopian and dark fiction. She enjoys writing main characters who are otherwise normal people with extraordinary abilities.
To say Dacia is an author and a mother would only be scratching the surface. She is an avid karaoke singer, master crafter and a thrift-ster. She is also a ten-year Army veteran and served two tours of combat as a medic.
From a young age, her imagination lent itself to short stories and poems. Like most girls, her father is her hero. Dacia moved every three years since she was born, as with most military families, which allowed her to reinvent herself with new friends. Later in life, she followed her father’s boot prints by joining the military. Dacia spent fifteen months working in Baghdad Emergency room. There she lay witness to both horrors and miracles.
While she was away for her second deployment, Dacia lost her best friend to domestic violence. After her friend’s passing, Dacia served as a victim advocate until her time in the military ended. Now, to help others, she speaks out often in social media platforms to encourage victims of their own strength and informs them of options to get help.
Dacia blogs about being a writer, a mom of two and the struggles therein. She sometimes incorporates other aspects of her life such as moving from Denver to Pittsburgh and shares a few DIY projects. When in rare form, she will share stories about her time in the military, her medical experiences, short fiction stories, and most rarely a poem.
