Author Bio: 

Dana Stone was born during the initial phases of World War II, in New York City where he spent his early childhood, punctuated by idyllic summers on Martha's Vineyard.  Subsequently he spent half a year in Mobile, Alabama, before moving to Southern California at age nine.  After receiving a BA in English from Kenyon College, Ohio, he move to Europe, where he lived in Norway and Spain, completing an MA from Middlebury College in Madrid.  During that period, he held odd jobs, including playing guitar in bars on Ibiza, fishing clams in Valencia, and traveling north to Oslo with other Spanish emigrants looking for work.

In 1976 he finished requirements for a PhD from SUNY in Comparative Literature, while teaching at the University of Puerto Rico.  He spent the next forty years raising five sons and working as a blue collar workman in the construction industry in Central California.  Four years ago he returned to his first love, literature, signaled by the the publication of an autobiographical account of his religious crisis at age eight, The Child Who Rejected God.  The theme that most interests his is the interface between human spirituality and the mythological and religious constructs that shape how people think, interpret the world, and make their daily life choices.
