The Fact Behind the Fiction

What Do I Do? 

I write; I coach new writers; I publish.

Why Do I Do What I DO 

I’m all about building people up. There’s so much negativity in the world – I want to tell stories that are uplifting without being trite; I want to coach people so they reach THEIR goals, in a way that is organic and natural to them. I want to be a catalyst for good things in the world.

  1. Before Dana’s books I could not bring myself to finish a fiction book (usually only reading chapter one if that far) but with her writing style I have not only finish a book but all four of her books and can’t wait for book five. Her writing style keeps you engaged in the story from beginning to the end. I never new fiction could be so relate-able and keep my attention until I read Dana’s books.

  2. Sorry it’s taken us so long to get by SSD. We’ve been locked away in our writing room trying to finish book #2 of our P-7 series but are almost done. Luv the blog & miss visiting with our friends but will soon be back on regular hours. Sharing your blog now. xo 🙂

  3. Can I just say how much I LOVE that your focus is on self love first? Between the day job and writing, I haven’t gotten to visit many of the blogs I follow. I’m so glad you linked up to Susie’s blog, giving me a chance to visit again. You. Are. Awesome. 🙂

  4. Sometimes to be true to yourself, you have to gut it up and travel that more difficult path. (These days, you may be ahead of the game keep your hand on all aspects of your work any way. No one will be pressuring you to change this or that to fit their concept.) Nice post

    1. Thank you! I was having a discussion just the other day about what I would have to do in order to be traditionally published and quite frankly, it’s just not worth it to me (so far, lol). I am enjoying this slow, but steady plod and will definitely maintain as much control over my written word as possible.
