Kayla Dawn Thomas


Kayla Dawn Thomas has been telling stories since she could talk, telling her wild tales to a jump rope until she learned to read and write. Her mother was relieved when she made the transition to paper.

Growing up, Kayla’s grandmother shared her love of books with her granddaughter. By the time Kayla was in junior high they were trading paperback romances back and forth, thus kindling her love affair with the genre. Her grandmother told Kayla in elementary school she would write novels someday, planting a seed that flourished in her thirties. She published her first contemporary romance in 2014 and never looked back.

Today Kayla writes contemporary romance, weaving her experiences growing up on a cattle ranch into her work as well as whatever is striking her funny bone or curiosity at the moment. When Kayla isn’t writing she enjoys swimming, reading, and spending time with her husband, daughter, and two dogs.
