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.

But first Emma must prove to the Pride that she has what it takes keep her Alpha. Treasure Hunting by J.B.

Then she wakes up to find a man in place of a cat, she wonders who’d believe it! Santiago has learned the hard way that when you can change into an animal at will, it tends to put human women off. But despite his best intentions, he finds himself falling hard for the little blonde who saved his life. Forever will take a leap of faith…or this treasure will slip through his fingers. Warning: This title contains explicit sex, bad language, loads of giggles, a hot, blond Alpha male and bad humor. http://www.jbmcdonald.com/ http://www.danamariebell.com/

Dana Marie Bell, Shadow of the Wolf

“I vow that from this day forward you shall not walk alone. My strength is your protection, my heart is your shelter, and my arms are your home. I shall serve you in all those ways that you require. I pledge to you my living and my dying, each equally in your care. Yours is the name I whisper at the close of each day and the eyes into which I smile each morning. I give you all that is mine to give. My heart and my soul I pledge to you. You are my Chosen One, you are my mate, and you are bound to me for eternity.”

Something is about to burst.
The clock is crouching, dark and small,
Like a time bomb in the hall.
Hark, it's midnight, children dear.
Duck! Here comes another year!”
Ogden Nash, Collected verse from 1929 on
