Dana has been a lifelong purveyor of the written word in all its myriad formats, dutifully chasing down the history of her beloved books through a Bachelor's in English Education from The University of Georgia and a Master's in English Literature from Georgia State. While studying at UGA, Dana also spent an exchange semester at Oxford University in England, and this experience ignited her passion for all things ancient, top-tier and mystical. She is currently sporting Louis Vuitton bags under her eyes as a proud side effect of having completed all coursework for a Doctorate in Modernist Literature, also from Georgia State, and being very nearly done with her dissertation on Anglo-Irish Women Writers. Her research focuses primarily on ideas of female ferality in Hibernian writers. Dana has published previously for Dekad Lifestyle Magazine and Culture Crush. She enjoys learning and writing about anything that enhances the life of the mind. She also has a strong theatre background forged largely by two years of studio training in New York. It has always been Dana's dream to write and publish on the largest scale possible, and she keeps a cauldron of creative writing projects ever-bubbling to that end. When not ensconced in a book or attempting to write one, Dana rides horses, hikes the National Forest near her cottage in the mountains, plays the guitar and piano, participates in her Mustang car club, studies apiary culture and helps raise bees, follows her favorite Australian grunge bands all over the world, collects glitter, and travels to new countries as often as possible.
