Meet Dana

Dana R. Lynn grew up in a suburb of Chicago, Illinois. She was blessed to belong to a large, boisterous and loving family. Even as a child, she was in love with the written word. Trips to the local bookstore and library were frequent and long, and she never left empty handed.

As an adult, she fell in love with Deaf culture. She works as a teacher for the Deaf and hard of hearing. She has also worked as an educational interpreter. She might have stayed in Illinois, but God stepped in.

She met her husband at a friend’s wedding in Pennsylvania. And knew. Returning home, she informed her parents that she had met the man she would marry. And she did. Now she makes her home in Pennsylvania with her husband, her children, and enough animals for a small petting zoo.

She enjoys writing stories with heart-stopping suspense and romance.

    I just finished reading your Inspired suspense novel, Presumed Guilty, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Most certainly I will read future books in this series written by you. Warmest best wishes and God bless. Verna, Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

    I am addicted to mystery novels. From the steadfast Agatha Christie to Robert Galbraith (aka JK Rowling) Presumed Guilty ranks right up there. I give it 5 Stars. And it was a lot of fun to be very familiar with all the locations.

    Well Done!

  3. Deb Roos says:

    My co-worker attended your book signing and let me borrow Presumed Guilty. I am hooked! Great characters and story line. You make your readers feel the suspense – I changed my mind several times about ‘who did it’. I enjoyed the modern day setting with familiar locations; and appreciated the clean, uplifting, Christian tone. Can’t wait for the next one!

  4. K Duke says:

    Loved your book. Great twists. Loved the characters. You made Jace and Mel feel like friends of mine and very likable! Maybe Maggie Slade, Seth, Dan, and Paul will be in future books with their own story. Maybe even Miles … We will wait and see! Can’t wait for your next book. A great story of forgiveness and trust.

  5. Julia says:

    I’m in the process of reading Presumed Guilty now and I’m hooked! I can’t wait to figure out what happens next!

    My Mom,who passed away a few years ago, and I read Harlequin Novels all the time. Your novel
    “Presumed Guilty” was wonderful. It had just the right combination of mystery, love,
    suspense, and faith. From the beginning to the end I really enjoyed reading your book.
    Looking forward to reading your next novel. My son is Michael Kline. Their family came down to Hudson, Florida for Christmas. Juliann had the book with her and said I could read it first and send it back to her (she knows I love to read). You truly are blessed with your family, your writing and the great ability to teach the hearing impaired. Give Brad a big hug. So glad Michael & your family have remained friends .

      Hi Carol! So glad you enjoyed the book! Thanks for your kind thoughts for my family. Prayers and blessings to you and Bernie. Have a great 2016.

  7. Glenda Smith says:

    You made me cry. They’re the kind of tears that turn haunts into hope, fear into faith, and a broken life towards restoration.
    I’m not sure what the specifics are that moved me, but I know God steered me here.
    You show me what belonging looks like.
    I’m pretty sure this is a God thing; something or someone unexpected touches me at that seemingly eternal moment with a hope I am afraid to need. A hope of no longer watching what life looks like, but rather with fear and trembling step into the arena knowing I am not alone.
    This is from the blurbs and bios. I can’t wait to read your stories.
    You are right, God’s timing is perfect.
    God amazes me.
    Keep writing.

    • Dana R. Lynn says:

      God is amazing, Glenda. His plans and dreams for us are bigger and more beautiful than anything we can ever hope to achieve on our own.

  18. MS Barb says:

    I read “Amish Abduction” last week–Wow! Good story! I worked in special education over 30 years & enjoyed working w/ people w/ Down Syndrome! My Special Olympian golf partner had Downs & quite the sense of humor…One day I “wiffed” the ball-it rolled about 2 feet & I said it would’ve gone further if I had just blown on it–the next season I wiffed the ball the 1st time we were out practicing. He seriously asked, “Do you want me to get down & blow on it!?” I told it would probably go further if he did blow on it! No boring games w/ him around!
