About Dana

Dana Lynn Thompson / pink typewriter and stack of booksDana is a writer, web designer, and co-founder of The Pink Typewriter Project, an initiative to make a difference in the world by promoting positive thinking, gratitude, and service to others.

She is working on a novel centered around her love of tennis, following the journey of Emma as she faces the loss of a loved one and finds solace and hope on the tennis court. One day Dana hopes to pen a memoir about her extraordinary 31 year relationship with the Arabian horse who changed the course of her life.

Dana holds a Bachelor of Science in Marketing from Canisius College and a Master of Arts in Leadership from Shorter University. She is a contributing writer for NW Georgia Living Magazine, has been featured in Magnolia’s issue on women and technology (yes, that’s me on the cover!), and interviewed on Blacksburg Belle, a popular blog for creative business women. She has published a narrative in the Shorter University literary magazine The Chimes, a history of her husband’s family dory in Maine, and a poem about her pony in the third grade.

A former Canadian girl who escaped the cold winters to reside in the sunny southern USA, Dana lives on a small farm with her rock star husband, two horses, and five rescue dogs. She is a lifelong Anglophile, vegetarian, yoga enthusiast, and actively helps raise funds for animal rescue. When not writing Dana can be found on the tennis court taking lessons, doing drills, and playing USTA league matches and still searching for an effective second serve.
