Dana Marie Bell wrote her first short story when she was thirteen years old. She's now a USA Today best-selling author, both self-published and with Carina Press. She lives with her husband Dusty, their two maniacal children, an evil ice-cream stealing cat and a dog who doesn't understand the meaning of "personal space". She's been heard to describe herself as "vertically challenged" and loves video games and anime. She is also an “invisible illness sufferer”, as she has both fibromyalgia and ankylosing spondylitis. Due to this, she walks with a cane or rides in a mobility scooter. She refuses to answer whether or not she’s ever attempted to run her children over with the scooter. She will say, however, that they are now very fast runners.
