Dana McNeely< Back to author list
Inspired by the Bible stories of Elijah, Dana wondered why the prophet came to stay with the widow of Zarephath and her son. Who were they? What was their life, before? How did the boy change after he died, saw the other world—and came back?
Those questions led to Dana writing RAIN, in which she built her dream world of adventure, danger, and romance. Peace and quiet, however, have remained elusive.
No stranger to drought, Dana lives in an Arizona oasis with her hubby the constant gardener, two good dogs, an antisocial cat, and migrating butterflies.
Her debut novel RAIN spins the tale of a mysterious prophet, a desperate youth, and a relentless queen. RAIN and a second novel in the "Whispers on the Wind" series are contracted by Mountain Brook Ink.
