About the author

Dana Wayne

Multi-awarding winning author Dana Wayne is a sixth generation Texan and resides in the Piney Woods with her husband, a Calico cat, three children and four grandchildren. She routinely speaks at book clubs, writers groups and other organizations and is frequent guest on numerous writing blogs.&nbsp; A die-hard romantic, her stories are filled with strong women, second changes, and happily ever after.<br><br>I’ve always wanted to write. I retired in late 2013 and published my first book, a contemporary romance, the summer of 2016. I was over the moon when it was awarded first place in a contest through Texas Association of Authors, and I never looked back. &nbsp;All of my books have been nominated for and/or received various awards. To have my work validated in such a manner is very gratifying and humbling. I’m all about the romance, so my tales are heartwarming, have a splash of suspense and humor. While they are a little steamy, I believe romance is more about emotion than sex, and the journey is more important than the destination." <br><br>Affiliations include Romance Writers of America, Texas Association of Authors, Writers League of Texas, East Texas Writers Guild, Northeast Texas Writers Organization, and East Texas Writers Association.
