From Chicken Soup for the Soul Celebrating Brothers and Sisters

Who Is Dahlynn McKowen?

Dahlynn McKowen is one of Chicken Soup for the Soul’s most trusted coauthors. She, along with her husband, Ken, coauthored Chicken Soup for the Fisherman’s Soul in May 2004. Dahlynn released Chicken Soup for the Entrepreneur’s Soul in September 2006 and Chicken Soup for the Soul in Menopause in July 2007. The McKowens are currently creating a twelve-book travel series for Chicken Soup for the Soul Enterprises and Health Communications, Inc., a first for both companies, and are coauthoring many more Chicken Soup titles.

The McKowens stay active with their company, Publishing Syndicate, a small business that provides writing, ghostwriting, and editing services to publishers. They also offer a free monthly writing tips e-newsletter and have created an e-booklet series entitled “The Wow Principles.” This series, which is sold via their website, focuses on aspects of writing for publication and profit. The McKowens also author other books each year, the most recent being Best of California’s Missions, Mansions, and Museums: Bringing the Golden State’s Past Alive for Today’s Travelers (Wilderness Press).

Dahlynn is an established freelance writer with numerous book contracts and screenplays under production. Since selling her first feature article in 1987, she has produced over 2,000 works, including business features, B&B reviews, restaurant reviews, and travel articles. She is a well-known ghostwriter and has ghostwritten stories for a former U.S. president and more than two dozen Fortune 100 and 500 corporate founders and CEOs, as well as a few California governors.

Dahlynn loves spending as much time as she can with her ten-year-old son, Shawn, and teenage daughter, Lahre, who are both active in the family business (a professional photographer and a Chicken Soup cartoonist, respectively). She also loves discovering new travel destinations with hubby Ken. Needless to say, her life is not dull by any stretch of the imagination!
