Author Highlight- Meet Gina Danna

Authentic Storm- by Gina Danna

It’s 1856: The forbidden love between an abolitionist New York senator and a freed Louisiana Colored woman could set the country on a new course – or wreck their lives. As the American Civil War looms ahead, they must find a way to survive the oncoming storm.

A USA Today Bestselling author, Gina Danna was born in St. Louis, Missouri, and has spent the better part of her life reading. History has always been her love and she spent numerous hours devouring historical romance stories, always dreaming of writing one of her own. After years of writing historical academic papers to achieve her undergraduate and graduate degrees in History, and then for museum programs and exhibits, she found the time to write her own historical romantic fiction novels.

Now, under the supervision of her dogs, she writes amid a library of research books, with her only true break away is to spend time with her other life long dream – her Arabian horse – with him, her muse can play.
