Dana Fraedrich is a dog lover, self-professed geek, and author of the steampunk fantasy series Broken Gears, which includes the Amazon bestseller, Out of the Shadows.  Dana's books are full of secrets and colorful characters that examine the many shades of grey that paint the world. When she isn't busy writing or attending book shows and author conferences, she can be found playing video games and frolicking among the Bookstagram community (the bookish corner of Instagram).

Even from a young age, she enjoyed writing down the stories that she imagined in her mind. Born and raised in Virginia, she earned her BFA from Roanoke College and is now carving out her own happily ever after in Nashville, TN with her husband and two dogs.  Dana is always writing; more books are on the way!

"Old World or New World? Fantasy, steampunk style, underground gangsters, magic, vampires, and travel.This is a page turning adventure of epic proportions!"

"Starts with action. Full of intrigue. Ends leaving you wanting more. Highly recommended!"

Praise for Into the Fire

"This was an intriguing story that brought to light how often we are so comfortable in our lives we are blinded to the reality around us. Wrapped through two contrasting towns and loves, Lenore is shows what she loves vs what is comfortable. It was a page turner that ended to soon for me!"

"An enjoyable and engrossing read from a very talented author"

"The author blends fantasy and history and steampunk technology in a book what will sweep you up and deposit you into its pages. An honourable mention here for Rook - crime lord extraordinaire, and easily one of my favourites. If you're looking for something fresh and different add this to your list now!"
