Chicken Soup for the Soul” author Dana Klosner is new to writing personal essays. But that hasn’t stopped people from gobbling them up.

Her features have appeared in Newsday, The Washington Post, The Baltimore Sun, The San Jose Mercury News, Long Island Exchange, Maryland Life Magazine, Long Island Parent Online, NY Metroparents, and Surfer Magazine as well as local and regional publications.

“It is always a pleasure working with Dana. She is very reliable, easy to work with, meets her deadlines, and most importantly, has written some great stories that continue to bring in traffic and links to our websites. I look forward to having her write for us for years to come.”

“When I was assistant bureau chief in the Howard County Bureau of the Baltimore Sun, Dana was one of the most reliable and talented free-lance writers I worked with. She needed little guidance or editing, and always brought a professional and positive demeanor to the job. I’d hire her again in a second and know I’d get the best work possible ahead of deadline and with a keen eye and mind for accuracy.”                                                                          Maureen Conners Dezell
