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. She's now a best selling
author with Samhain Publishing and Carina Press, and has consistently earned top reviews from RT BOOKreviews and other reviewers.
Dana has lived primarily in the Northeastern United States 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. She's been heard to describe herself as "vertically challenged" and "a lapsed brunette." Dana also suffers from osteoarthritis, and can be seen walking with a cane or tooling around in her mobility scooter. Her condition was the inspiration for Belle's hip injury in Steel Beauty, one of the novellas in Animal Attraction.
