K H Dawson

Welcome to the website of K H Dawson - the author of An Unseasonable SpiritThe Empty Vessel, The Book of Almost Anything  and The Turn of the Seasons. All publications are available to buy on Amazon.


Dawson  lives in South Lanarkshire with her wife, her two children and her ginger tabby called Tigger.

Dawson fell in love with reading at an early age, all thanks to her grandmother and parents. Her passion for literature led her to Glasgow University where she successfully completed a degree in English Language and Literature. Dawson then went on to achieve a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (English Secondary) the following year. From there, she worked in various schools, before settling in a local Lanarkshire school, where she has been sharing her enthusiasm for English literature and language ever since.


K H Dawson began writing her first novel, The Book of Almost Anything, in 2014. She had a vision of what she wanted to write, and even early on, she realised that her novel would be the first part of a trilogy.

Two haunting seasonal tales that will take you on a journey...
When death’s unwanted presence knocks upon the door of Alec Morton, he decides to seek solace elsewhere: the Isle of Eairdsidh. This isolated archipelago situated in the East coast of Scotland appears to be the perfect place for Alec - along with his beautiful, brown-eyed daughter, Frida - to drop anchor.
Everything seems fine, until the empty vessel emerges.
Upon the ghostly galleon’s arrival, everything changes. Death casts its unwanted, macabre spell.
And Alec Morton’s life changes forever.
Something is deeply wrong in the Scottish village of Cothromach.
Some snowfall had been forecast. But, against all predictions, an intense wall of white silence consumes the sleepy village, slipping over everything in sight, smothering the Scottish settlement. The silence is vociferous.
The longest night creeps closer and closer.
And Saskia Mallory, a troubled teenager with a sad tale to tell, is in grave danger.

If they ask me, I could write a book,
about the way you walk and whisper and look.
I could write a preface on how we met
So the world would never forget. F Sinatra

Enchanting novel for adults and children alike. Powerful descriptions that invite you in to the world and mind of the protagonist. Enigmatic. Actually could not put this book down.
