Bio for 2018

LaDawn Garvin started off journaling her thoughts as she went through life starting in the early 80’s and wrote poems for others as encouragement. She did not know she had the talent of writing until a very close friend encouraged her to share her writings with other. In July of 2017, her first book was written and published; The Rose in the Mirror: The Reflection of a Woman; Reflection of You. From that point on, she continued to write and put her writings together to get ready to publish her second book and has already started on the third book.
LaDawn is passionate about writing and is attending the University of Kentucky to earn her Bachelor degree in Writing. She wants to share her passion with others rather it is writing books or speaking to an audience about her journey in life that has brought her to this point. LaDawn was born in a small town of Jeannette, PA and moved to Louisville, KY when she was a young girl. It wasn’t until she moved to Lexington, KY in 2016 that she began to work on her first published book. She needed away from the chaos in Louisville to begin a new beginning.
