Dana Mentink

Dana Mentink lives in California with her husband and two children. She has a major in Liberal Studies with an English minor. Her first love is the classroom, having taught children from preschool through fifth grade for over a decade.

One of her specialties is public speaking. She earned scholarships for competitive speech and debate throughout high school and college and enjoyed competing at a national level in advocacy and dramatic interpretation.

Dana is perpetually in search of a great story, either through painfully expensive trips to the book store or in her own labors in front of the computer. Her series of UP FINNY’S NOSE mysteries debuted in 2007 from Barbour Books for their Heartsong Presents mystery line.

Dana enjoys writing for Harlequin’s Love Inspired Suspense line. Her book, KILLER CARGO, arrived in June of 2008, followed by FLASHOVER this February. Another two will follow in upcoming months.

In addition to her novels, Dana writes short articles both fiction and non, for magazines such as Pockets, Appleseeds, Great Mystery and Suspense Magazine, as well as freelancing for the Contra Costa Times.

Dana enjoys mentoring other writers and finding new vehicles to provide her readers with a hefty dose of mystery, merriment and make-believe. Feel free to drop by her website for a contest or a little chit chat at
