Dana Wayne is an award-winning author and 6th generation Texan (or 7th depending on which relative you ask). She resides in East Texas with her husband (and biggest fan) along with a Calico cat named Katie, three children and four grandchildren. She routinely speaks to books clubs, services organizations, writers groups and other organizations on writing and publishing.
"I grew up listening to my father read passages from the stack of paperback westerns beside his chair, and was fascinated at how someone could paint a picture with words so vivid, I could see it in my mind. That's when I knew that one day I would be a writer. Life has a way of delaying dreams and that happened to me. It wasn't until I retired in late 2013 that I was able to devote as much time as I wanted to writing. My first book was published in 2016 and I’ll release my fourth one in May 2019. My stories do have some heat to them but I believe romance is more about emotion than sex, and the journey is more important than the destination."
She is a member of Romance Writers of American, Texas Association of Authors and Writers League of Texas as well as several local writers groups.
