Multi-awarding winning author Dana Wayne is a sixth-generation Texan and still resides in the Piney Woods. A sought-after speaker and die-hard romantic, her stories are filled with strong women, second chances, and happily ever after.
“I’ve had a love affair with words my whole life and from an early age, aspired to write. That dream became a reality with the release of my first book in the summer of 2016. I was over the moon when it received first place in a state-wide contest, and I never looked back.
“I’m all about the romance; that excursion two people take from ‘I’ll never love again’ to ‘Happily Ever After’. My stories are very character-driven versus plot-driven and typically include a splash of humor and suspense. While they are a bit steamy at times, I believe true romance is about emotion, not sex, and the journey is more important than the destination. “
