For her first eighteen years, Dana Tramba was known as Dandy Donovan from the Centerview-Lewis, Kansas community. Thus the name for this website is Dandystories.com.
Dana has a B.S. degree from Manhattan Christian College in Bible, Business Management, and Ethics. She is the author of Making Peace with the Pieces of My Life, a memoir. Throughout her writing journey, she realized God was with her during each turning point. Her spiritual journey started in the little Methodist Church in Centerview, Kansas.
She is a memoir writer and became a Certified Life Writing Instructor through the Soliel Lifewriting Network in Lisbon, Maine. Dana has facilitated memoir classes in Kansas, Arizona, and Oklahoma using her Save Your Life One Story at a Time curriculum. Her passion is motivating others to write their story so they will leave a legacy for family. “We are the authors of our own stories.” Each story is different because of the mountains and valleys we traveled.
For years she wrote short stories, colored, copied quotes and favorite scriptures, or spent time doodling. Currently, she co-edits a newsletter, The HeartBeat, with Tanya Cox for residents of Touchmark at Coffee Creek. Being retired nurses, together they share health tips and interview residents. We like to share real-life stories. Everyone has a story, but not everyone can write it.
Dana would like to hear from you when her blogs trigger memories. She hopes her kindred readers will write and save their life one story at a time.
When you reflect and write your stories, the same thing that happened to Dana might happen to you. You will discover how God made Peace with the Pieces of Your Life.
