Dana Gynther was born in St Louis and, at the age of ten, moved to Auburn, Alabama. She attended the University of Alabama, majoring in Political Science, and moved to France after receiving her BA. When she returned to the States a year and a half later, she went back to UA and received an MA in French Literature. In 1994, she and her French-speaking Spanish husband moved to his hometown, Valencia (Spain), where they work as teachers and translators and enjoy spending time with their two daughters.

"Crossing on the Paris," her debut novel, explored the lives of three women as they made the voyage across the Atlantic on an ocean liner. It was an Indie Next Pick and B&N Hot Pick for November 2012 and Dana was chosen as a Target Emerging Author.

Her most recent novel, "The Woman in the Photograph," to be released in August 2015, is a novelized account of the relationship between the two photographers, Lee Miller and Man Ray in Paris in the early 1930s.
