Dana Ellington


At twelve, I wrote a short story - all about a girl who was recruited to save an entire planet from an alien invasion. That summer, at camp, I turned that story into a play which I then produced, directed, and stared in. My fellow camp-goers and I performed it for the parents at our end of summer extravaganza and earned a standing ovation. My inner storyteller was born!

I would go on to write almost daily in a journal for the next 31 years – poems, bits and pieces of stories, and the ever-dramatic details of my day-to-day life. In 2008, I turned a number of those bits and pieces into my first, self-published book. I’ve been on a roll ever since, topping off my production to date with four published works, three new releases coming this year, and three in production for release next year.
