Hey! I'm Dana. I've been telling stories my whole life (even if I was my only audience sometimes), and there's something about writing and giving life to characters that gives ME life, so it's not something I will ever stop doing.
I have a BA in Creative Writing from Southern Utah University, and I am where I am because of professors there who helped me expand my potential when it came to writing and editing.
If I'm not writing (which is almost constantly, sometimes even while I'm doing other things), I'm often outside. I was raised to enjoy camping, hiking, backpacking, whitewater rafting, and even just sitting out in the fresh air, and I've had many a story idea while out in the wilderness.
If I'm not writing or outside, I'm baking, and I've always thought owning a bakery would be fun (until I realize that wouldn't leave any time for writing). So I bake for myself and my roommate, and I'm honestly surprised neither of us has gotten fat yet.
I'm a firm believer that everyone has a story inside them, and no matter how you share that story with the world, it's one that is worth telling.
