About the Author

Dana Michelle Burnett was born and raised in beautiful Southern Indiana. Early on, she discovered the magic of book and stories. "I was always making stories up, even before I was old enough to write them down, and acting them out for anyone that would hold still."

She was in high school when she read the classic Lolita, which opened her up to the idea that the most fascinating characters are not pillars of society, but individuals full of flaws.

She earned a guest columnist spot with her local newspaper, The Tribune, which is published out of New Albany, Indiana in 1991 and 1992. She was published in the Above and Beyond section of Just Labs for a piece entitled You Get What You Give, which appeared in the 2003 September/October issue. Cats & Kittens published Louis: A Confused Feline in the July 2004 issue. Outsider Ink published Not That Bad in the Spring/Summer 2004 issue. She had a flash fiction piece entitled My Little Secret that was published in the 2005 issue of Mindprints: A Literary Journal. Foliate Oak Literary Magazine also published an excerpt of her fiction novel, Ghost Country, entitled John Lennon and the Chicken Holocaust in the February 2006 edition and it was included in their Best of Foliate Oak issue. Another excerpt of Ghost Country entitled Spring appeared in the winter 2007 issue of Mobius.

Ghost Country was Burnett's first fiction novel to be published. The novel features a glimpse into her own Cherokee ancestry mixed with fictional characters and compelling stories.

"The idea for the novel sprang from the Cherokee heritage of my own family, from one generation to the next; our tie to the Cherokee has become less evident." Burnett explained, "With the birth of my daughter, I began to research our Cherokee lineage so that perhaps my daughter's connection could be stronger than mine was. During my research, these characters came to mind. Ghost Country became the result."

Burnett still lives in Southern Indiana. Her site, DanaMichelleBurnett.com has more information about upcoming projects and appearances.

*sigh* I can’t believe it is over. I’m sad to see it go. Granted, this was a trilogy and not a longer series, but Becca and Alastor have grown on me in ways I can’t even explain. But I guess I’d better try, right?  The mutual obsession between Becca and Alastor has been a rollercoaster of a ride, to put it lightly. If you have never considered a love story between a ghost and living person, you should reconsider. Throughout this trilogy Dana Michelle Burnett has woven this story together so beautifully, you can’t help but root for them to make it. They aren’t your typical couple, but the two of them together are perfect.  In Incarnate we meet up with the couple after Becca has been released from the institution. And from the mouth of a stranger, she believes there could be hope for her and Alastor to be together in a more material and physical way. Can you believe it? It was almost too much for me to hope for! This installation is told in two parts really. Present time, and then in love letters sent between Alastor and Becca during the war in 1862. Through the letters you get to see the depth of their love, their devotion, their determination to wait for each other. And from the previous two books, you know that Alastor’s life after coming home…well, it’s not exactly picture perfect. I’m not a historical fan usually, but the way these letters play out, it really tugged at my heartstrings.  I ended up reading this book in a day. I received a copy from Dana, but I also bought a print copy from Amazon for myself, because I just had to have it. I had to find out if Becca would succeed. Hell, I had to know how it was even supposed to happen! I felt like I nearly held my breath through the whole book, and I read it in a day. Friends, if you want to read an atypical love story that crosses boundaries, breaks hearts, mends them back together and everything in between, then you must read the Spiritus series. Thank you to Dana for allowing me to review every book in the trilogy, I’ve loved this trip!
