Dana Marie Bell wrote her first short story when she was thirteen years old. She attended the High School for Creative and Performing Arts for creative writing, where freedom of expression was the order of the day. When her parents moved out of the city and placed her in a Catholic high school for her senior year she tried desperately to get away, but the nuns held fast, and she graduated with honors despite herself.

Dana has lived primarily in the Northeast (Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, to be precise), with a brief stint on the US Virgin Island of St. Croix. She lives with her soul-mate and husband Dusty, their two maniacal children, an evil ice-cream stealing cat and a bull terrier that thinks it’s a Pekinese.

A few things to note before I get to the post: during Samhain's close, bookswill be for sale!So if there's a book you want,go ahead and buy it. Samhain will let everyone know when the books will no longer be available, and believe me, so will the authors. Also, the authors will continue to get paid, so don't worry that we're getting shafted. We're not. I would trumpet it if we were, believe me.... Read more of this blog post »
