Dana Bowman is a long-time English teacher and part-time professor at the department of English at Bethany College in Kansas. Author of the popular momsieblog.com, she presents workshops on both writing and addiction, with an emphasis on being a woman in recovery while parenting young children. She also frequently is called on by the media such as the Today Show. Dana lives in Lindsborg, Kansas, with her husband, two young boys, and two neurotic cats. She is very active in her church. Last Christmas she played the part of Mary and is still in recovery from the pressure. She is grateful that her church family loves her because at times she can be as neurotic as her cats.
