"Effortlessly entertaining and raucously funny."
"Nothing about Dana McSwain's style or subject matter reminds me at all of H. P. Lovecraft, but he also wrote a whole bunch of stories about different people running around in the same setting."
"The Frank & Alex books are like Cloud Atlas... with more explosions and guns."

Dana McSwain grew up on the shores of the Great Lakes in the shadow of the Rust Belt. A graduate of Kent State University, she lives in a 106 year old house in Cleveland, OH with her family and two dogs.

Her newest book, Roseneath (October 2020), was written during the ten years she spent restoring an abandoned 1921 Tudor Revival in one of Cleveland's inner ring suburbs that locals believe to be haunted.
