A bit about the author artist and family...

My name is Dana Smith-Mansell, my husband's name is Rob.  We live in a semi-rural area in Pennsylvania at the base of a mountain.  We enjoy the nature that surrounds us, as does our pets.  My husband is an accountant.  I have a BS in Special Education and a Master's Degree in Behavior Disorders.  Our pets are very  much a part of our lives.

I have been blessed in many ways.  One way is having the pleasure of pets in my life, and my husband of course.  I have also been blessed by meeting with some publishing, writing, and illustrating success-a new door was opened at a time in my life when I so desperately needed it.  Below are some of my published work and links to my other sites. I hope you will have an opportunity to review my other sites, and perhaps even be interested in purchasing some of my books.  I appreciate your visit and wish you many blessings (animal, human, and spiritual) in your life.  Peace.

I stand and look at them long and long." ~ Walt Whitman
