Dana Regan grew up in a small village in northern Wisconsin. It was very cold and snowy so she migrated south to St. Louis to get her BFA in Illustration from Washington University. It was very hot so she traveled west to Kansas City and made greeting cards. It was a very big company so she made a small studio in her home to freelance and make children’s books. It was just right. She is living happily ever after. But she misses the cold and snow. Dana has written and illustrated many books for Grosset & Dunlap, Harper Collins, Penguin, Random House, Scholastic and Simon & Schuster just to name a few and she gets to think up lots of fun ideas for Highlights and High Five Magazines. She has 2 very tall sons who are excellent sources of inspiration and tech support.
