Born and raised in Utah, Danna Smith was exposed to all sorts of creatures through her father who trained, bred, and rehabilitated animals. It was not uncommon to find bobcats, alligators, monkeys, hawks, or even vultures at her home. Her love of animals and nature spilled over to her love of writing stories. Her favorite toys as a child were a pen and notebook. Today her favorite thing is a keyboard. While her main focus is writing picture books for the very young, she enjoys writing creative non-fiction for older children as well. Danna now lives in Northern California and spends her time taking care of her family, writing, visiting schools, painting, and enjoying the outdoors whenever she can.
