Dawn Cairns works with her father, Eric Cairns in his business The Eric Cairns Partnership Estate Agents. They have two branches and Dawn works in the Stranmillis, Belfast branch. Dawn moved back to Belfast after nine years in Edinburgh where she worked at a variety of jobs as a student including barmaid, waitress, shop assistant and in the editorial department of The Stationery Office, formerly the HMSO. Dawn started off in the family business as a sales negotiator and then moved into marketing. "I enjoy the business but we are dealing with people at a very stressful time so we try to make it as painless as possible. On a lighter side you get to see snap shots of people's lives when you show prospective buyers round homes. I have dealt with everything from drunken vendors to opening bedroom doors to reveal people in an unsuitable state, to arriving to a showing with the owner still in the shower. The most fraught perhaps was when a family dog went for a viewer and sent him running in tears. In my current role I am responsible for marketing new homes, writing editorials for newspapers, advertising and liasing with designers for sales brochures." Dawn's father Eric is a well known businessman and is heavily involved with many charities. He is currently chairman of MAC - Men Against Cancer - which aims to set up prostate cancer screening units both in Belfast and Dublin. Eric is also an auctioneer and auctioned the last Delorian cars to be built in Northern Ireland back in the 80's. He is regularly involved in charity auctions. Now that he realises that Dawn is not going to be either a vet or a pilot, he, along with the rest of her family, is 100% supportive of Dawn's writing career.
