Author Talks

By Rebecca Cahill

Dana L. Brown, author of the Award Winning novel, Lottie Loser and Call Me Charlotte, which won a Gold Medal in Romance! Check out her interview below!

Tell me more about yourself:

I took early retirement from a thirty-two career in banking to write the book that was burning in my soul! I am a wife, mother and grandmother, and a National Award Winning Author.

What inspired you to be an Author?

I love to read more than just about anything, and around five years ago the idea for a book crept into my head, and I just had to write it. I really believe all the books I’ve read in my life were my inspiration.

How long have you been writing for?

Just about two and a half years.

How many stories have you written?

I have my two published novels, plus the third book of the series is written, just waiting for publication. Other than that I wrote a story for a writing group about fifteen years ago.

Is writing your full time profession?

Yes, writing is my full time job.

What is the craziest thing you’ve had to research?

Fancy shoes!  I don’t wear high heels and had to learn all about them!

Who is your favorite character?

I love Charlotte.  She’s smart and sexy and kind…she’s who I want to be when I grow up.

What are your top five tips for an aspiring author?

1. You’re never too old to rewrite your personal story

2. Have confidence in your abilities

3. Never let anyone try to change your storyline because it doesn’t fit some rule.

4. Be grateful everyday for the opportunity to write

5. Believe…Fairytales do come true!
