Dana Gaulin

Biography

Growing up in Southern Arizona, born and raised in Tucson, I began telling wild stories when my younger siblings came into the world as a way to help entertain them.
As a young adult, I worked in assisted living and alongside hospice. I would listen to the tales of people’s lives, and I loved to write them down as a way to remember them
After the birth of my second child, I decided to leave the medical field to raise my children. We traveled around the United States creating stories and learning so much from the people and the cultures around us. It's true; every place you go has hidden treasures right before your eyes. We traveled a lot, moving every couple of years, living in Arizona, Washington, Oregon, Oklahoma, Maryland, and New York.
As I started looking into the possibility of publishing my books, I worried I wouldn't be able to make it without formal training in writing. All that changed, however, when I met a fellow creative writer who told me, "You don't need a degree to be creative."
Her words inspired me so much that I assembled a team and started writing the fantastic adventures that were demanding to be freed.
When I'm not writing, I love to spend time with my family, read, as well as blog, and vlog on my YouTube Channel.

Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
Ha, Ha, Ha. I write on a laptop. My desk as been my very cluttered kitchen table, my pick-up truck, my bed, the couch, a beautiful flower filled meadow, next to an amazing lake in Northern Arizona while I was trout fishing, my sewing room, coffee shop, and wherever the creative juices start to flow. The one thing all these places have in common is my mascot BEAR is right there with me. She is a black bear, and she was a gift from the place that my heart calls home, the Appalachian mountains.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Southern Arizona and also Western Maryland. I remember from a very young age I would make up wild stories about the people on the airplanes, and in the area I was. I have always had a very vivid imagination, and spent a lot of my time alone. I was the child of a young mother. I spent most of my day with my Great Grandparents, my Maternal Grandma (While my mom finished school), my Paternal Grandma, and numerous Aunts and Uncles. When I was five years old, I met my terminally ill father, and he promised to live until I no longer needed him. He is still alive. Spending so time on both sides of the country, and having so many influential people, and cultural experiences have played a huge part of the stories that come to my mind. I grew up in a time where we didn't have electronic everything. I remember taking the mattress off my bed to make a fort in my room where I would spend so much time on my own I was able to strengthen my talent for wielding a good tale. There is nothing better than a good story made up by you and your imaginary friend.
