Dana V. Moison is an Amazon best-selling author who specializes in writing detective mysteries led by strong women sleuths. Being born to an Israeli mother and an American Father, Dana has gained the best of both worlds: she dreams big and has the Israeli Chutzpah to pursue her dreams. While most of her family resides in the U.S., she was born and raised in Tel Aviv, Israel. Nevertheless, her frequent visits to her family in New York City have allowed her to experience the city as a local. New York had been the source of inspiration for her first novel, Dark Illusion, which takes place in Manhattan. In fact, quite a few chapters were handwritten at her favorite Starbucks, located in the basement floor of the Empire State Building. Soon enough she traded her ballpoint pen with a laptop, and they haven't been separated ever since.
Dana started working toward a degree in psychology during high school. She graduated with top honors and received her bachelor's degree from the Open University after completing her military service as a psycho-technical diagnostician. Dana worked as one of the youngest columnists for Ynet, the #1 news website in Israel, before releasing her first novel at the age of 23.
In 2012 Dana moved to the French Alps to work, where she was able to polish her French and, against all odds, some pretty decent skiing skills. She kept writing her column while being abroad. When she returned to Israel, she enrolled in the gender studies program at Tel Aviv University. She graduated with top honors and earned her master's degree at the age of 28.
Due to the positive reviews and praises her first suspense novel received in Israel, Dana decided to publish it in English. Dark Illusion hit thousands of downloads and sales within 24 hours of its debut, becoming #1 best seller in the Travel Adventure genre and achieving high rankings in multiple Mystery, Thriller & Suspense categories.
Subsequently, Dana's second thriller novel, The False Mirror, was published on Amazon, ranking at the top of the charts and reaching thousands of readers only days after its release.
Due to its success, Dark Illusion was recently relaunched in a new edition, gaining tens of thousands of new avid readers discovering the illusive magic of this unique and unpredictable psychological thriller.
Along with The False Mirror, Dana's books have over 100,000 readers worldwide!
Nowadays Dana is working on the third book in the Sharon Davis Chronicles, which is expected to be released in 2021.
