Dana Littlepage Smith

Dana Littlepage Smith is an American who has lived with her husband in Devon for 20 years. She is a Quaker who has published four previous books and has collaborated with South West writers in Secret Rooms, a book against domestic violence. She spends as much time as possible outside in the healing presence of trees, seas and other creatures and in this new collection she celebrates love in its many forms.

    Sadly, all readings and launches scheduled for the next few months have had to be cancelled or postponed because of the corona virus. We look forward to getting back to our public events when life eventually returns to something like normal.

    In the meantime, readers may be interested to have news of the latest novel by Alwyn Marriage: ‘The Elder Race’.
