In 2017, Drea became the proud mother of a baby girl. She took a hiatus from writing to spend time with her family, but will soon return to author events and writing.  

In the mean time, Damara signed a multi-book deal with BHC Press.  They will release the first installment of her upcoming fantasy series, The Weeping Books of Blinney Lane, in September 2018. 

New chapter: 




Drea is a native resident of Illinois, where she currently resides.  She spent much of her youth there traversing the woods on her family's farm or working in the fields.  She began writing poetry at a young age and saw her first work published at the age of nineteen.  Damara put writing aside to join the military and later government work, during which she spent time in the Middle East and Europe.  Her childhood and world experiences contributed to the creation of The Blinney Lane series and The Trininty Mission series.
