Dana Davis is a multi-award-winning author of fantasy and science fiction, with an entertainment background in stage and television. Several of her books hit SynergEbooks Publishing House's bestselling list during her 9+ years with them. Dana has a Creative Writing degree from Cal State Long Beach and had her first book published in 2006. She has been living with Meniere's Disease for over 20 years now but doesn't let that stop her from pursuing her dreams.
She has traveled around the world and even walked on a live volcano, a lifelong dream of hers. Dana has worked for museums, libraries, and as a paranormal investigator. She is a genealogy nerd obsessed with old graveyards and her family tree, especially since she discovered her royal European lineage several years ago. Her more colorful ancestors often inspire characters or scenes in her novels.
Beaches and deserts have been her favorite places since childhood and always influence her writing. Dana hails from Los Angeles, spent a few years on the Oregon coast, and now lives in Arizona with her husband, where she is writing another book.
