About the Author

A native Houstonian and a graduate of the Texas Tech University, Amy W. Daughters has been a freelance writer for more than a decade--mostly covering college football and sometimes talking about her feelings. Her debut novel, You Cannot Mess This Up: A True Story That Never Happened (She Writes Press, 2019), was selected as the Silver Winner for Humor in the 2019 Foreword INDIES and the Overall Winner for Humor/Comedy in the 2020 Next Generation Indie Awards. She is married to a foxy computer person, Willie (53), and is the lucky mother of two amazing sons, Will (23) and Matthew (15). An amateur historian, hack golfer, charlatan fashion model, and regular on the ribbon dancing circuit, Amy--a proud former resident of Blackwell, England, and Dayton, Ohio--currently lives in Tomball, Texas, a suburb of Houston.

". . . a captivating study regarding writing letters to friends and rethinking how people successfully bond in the modern world. An intriguing and inspiring exploration of different forms of communication."

--Kirkus Reviews

"Dear Dana is an inspirational memoir about caring for friends near and far by reviving a lost art."

--Foreword Reviews

"This is a book for anyone who wonders about the differences between a Facebook friend and a Real-Life friend and who yearns to see a person's real life behind their Facebook image. It is also about the power of prayer and the abundance of kindness in our world. But ultimately, it's about connection and how we are all connected when we come from love."

--Rivvy Neshama, author of Recipes for a Sacred Life: True Stories and a Few Miracles

"Amy shows us how something as simple as a letter--let alone 580 of them!--can change a life. Who else would decide to write a personal letter to every one of their Facebook friends? The stories from these letters provide insights into how we can help people through difficult times and connect with others--and, of course, plenty of good laughs."

--Brad Aronson, best-selling author of HumanKind: Changing the World One Small Act At a Time.

"Captivating . . . I laughed and I cried as I followed the pleasures of real mail, and the lesson hit home: Whether written or spoken, our words matter. They have the power to illuminate someone's darkest day."

--Laurie Buchanan, PhD, author of Note to Self: A Seven-Step Path to Gratitude and Growth and The Business of Being: Soul Purpose In and Out of the Workplace
