J. Dana Trent

Dana was born in L.A. but has called North Carolina home for over three decades. She bleeds Duke blue and heads to the Barre at 6:00 a.m. (not that kind of bar). A professor of world religions, when Dana's not teaching group fitness classes or keeping college students awake, she's taste-testing desserts. Her latest book is Dessert First: Preparing for Death While Savoring Life.
