Randee Dawn is an author, journalist, and lucky denizen of Brooklyn. She published her collection of dark speculative fiction short stories, Home for the Holidays in 2014 and spent an inordinate amount of time watching Law & Order: SVU in order to co-author the definitive book on the show, The Law & Order: SVU Unofficial Companion (BenBella Books, 2009).

Her short fiction has appeared in publications and podcasts including 3AM Magazine ("The View of My Brother's Profile in the Rear-View Mirror," 2001; "Warm, In Your Coat," 2004) and Well-Told Tales ("Home for the Holidays," 2015; "Can't Keep a Dead Man Down," 2017). Other stories have appeared in anthologies including Where We May Wag ("The Last Dog," Writing Piazza Press, 2018), Children of a Different Sky ("Can't Find My Way Home," Kos Books, 2018) and Magic for Beginners ("Queen Zoe and the Spinning Game," Fantasia Divinity, pending 2019). She is currently co-editing a speculative fiction anthology of "what if" stories about The Beatles, called Across the Universe: Tales of Alternative Beatles (Fantastic Books, pending 2019), and her current novel, Tune in Tomorrow, is represented by Bridget Smith of Dunham Literary.

When not making stuff up, Randee publishes entertainment profiles, reviews, and think pieces regularly in outlets including Variety, The Los Angeles Times, Today.com and Emmy Magazine. She is a member of the Tabula Rasa writing group, blogs regularly at randeedawn.com and tweets frequently at @RandeeDawn.
