I’m Dawn Robinson-Walsh. Welcome to my website. 

My latest work was published by Fonthill Media just before lockdown in the UK. A fresh approach to the life of tarot artist, Pamela Colman Smith, who died in Bude, the research/book questions some commonly held assumptions about this talented illustrator who died in Bude. Currently, I am researching the equally intriguing life of Charlotte Payne-Townshend, wife of the playwright, George Bernard Shaw, a fascinating woman in her own right, who helped to found the London School of Economics (LSE).

My daily writing is hyperlocal news which may be found here at Bude & Beyond.

A little about me

Non-fiction writer



A lover of research,  I write non-fiction. My reading and film preferences are social realism, which gels with my interest in history, sociology and psychology.

People tell me non-fiction is easier than writing fiction. I tell them to check out the extensive research which is a prerequisite in writing non-fiction, and then tell me how easy it is!

Variety in writing, truth and authenticity are imperative whatever we write, and we can all try our best to achieve that.

Writing is easy. All you have to do is cross out the wrong words.

– Mark Twain
