My name is Dana Staves, and I’m a writer and home cook. I earned my MFA at Old Dominion University, where I studied fiction. My work has appeared in Shaking Magazine, Alimentum, Grist, Fiction Writers Review, Book Riot, Distinction, Food Riot, and a few other publications. I live in southern Maryland with my wife, our son, and our very clingy cat.
I enjoy a lot of things, most of which I’ll write about here, but my life centers primarily around writing and eating. And to achieve eating, cooking. Whisks & Words combines those two loves to be a blog about a writer who cooks.
