Dana Marie Bell has lived mostly in the Northeast with a brief stint on the island of St. Croix. She lives with her husband, their two maniacal children, an evil ice-cream-stealing cat and a bull terrier that thinks it's a Pekinese. (Yes, dogs and cats can live together without someone winding up lunch... like the poor human who stuck them in the same house.) You can learn more about Dana at www.danamariebell.com. "Animal Attraction" is Dana's fourth published title.
