Dana was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan and raised in Panama City Beach, Florida. Dana began writing as a pass-time hobby with her childhood best friend, Miriyha. It wasn't until her college experience in Asheville, North Carolina that she developed her love for writing. Dana has two children and a partner that she adores. The one word that describes Dana is "passionate." Whether it be the color purple, the Florida Gators, or Amy Grant she is very passionate about what and who she loves. Her favorite things to do while not writing are fishing with her son, watching her daughter's softball games, walking on the beach with her partner and spending time with her closest friends.
