California-born and raised, Dee Ann refuses to live more than 20 minutes away from the ocean. She harbors intense affection for older cars, and has a 1956 Thunderbird and a 1966 Mustang, (both convertibles, of course). She has, what some may consider, an unhealthy love for Rocky Balboa. If you’re kind at heart and love animals, then you’re A-OK in DeeAnnLand. Working with words is her absolute dream job. She pinches herself every day over the fact that she gets paid for this. Hidden talent: She reads and transcribes Braille.
