Dana graduated from Radford University. While there, she contemplated majoring in anthropology, fashion design, speech pathology, and teaching.
Junior year, after reviewing her elective class schedule, she found her way. It was clear, English was her love. She majored in English with a concentration in business and technical writing and minored in media studies. Technical writing was to appease her parents. Fiction writing is where her heart is.
Dana currently lives in Southwest Virginia with her husband, daughter and four animals: a mean cat, a sweet dog and two stinky (but cute) guinea pigs.
