Dana Littlejohn

I was born in Brooklyn, NY on a snowy winter's day. I was told that I interrupted my parents' Christmas party. It was well after midnight, but my arrival put a stop to the late night party and stopped my mom from going ice skating with everyone else at Rockefeller Center. I moved to Indianapolis, In. in summer of 1994 where I still live with my husband and 4 children.

As a young child I wrote Hickory Dickory Dock type poetry as I doodled all over my papers in school. I still don't know which I did more, but by Jr. high school I wrote more than doodled and even got up the nerve to enter them in a contest or two. But it was my short stories that took all my time and energy. I showed a few to my friends and they had me doing weekly installments of a story and had passed it around the lunch room. During the 80's, when I was in high school, I tried my hand at rapping. Rap music was just a toddler with the arrival of the Sugar Hill Gang a few years back and everyone wanted to rap. So with my 'crew' The Puma Fly Girls, (come on, you had a weird crew name too) we rapped and I wrote the rhymes for myself as Shorty Dee Ski and for another one of the girls in my crew. (Don't laugh. If you are a child of the 80's you were some kind of a 'ski', too.) In college, I thought it was time to grow up and get a job. I turned toward teaching, thinking that was my calling and I put down my pen for what I thought was the greater good.

passed by with several life changes. I realized you have to be a special kind of a person to teach other people's children. Three years into teaching realized I wasn't that kind of person. Everyday should be 'be nice to a teacher day'. Give the next teacher you come across a hug, trust me. I now work in the research department for a lab, doing my little part to eradicate cancers in women. My husband and I have a fantastic marriage, that I work very hard at keeping out of my books. My children are almost all grown up and don't need me like they used to. But even after all the years and all the changes the fire inside me to write never went out.

In 2003 I picked up my pen again and I haven't put it down. Come along for the ride as I go on an imaginary trip into my world. You'll enjoy every minute of this wild ride.
