About Dana Archer

Follow Dana Archer:

Dana Archer is the closed-door pen name of Nancy Corrigan.

Nancy’s bio:

Nancy Corrigan is a dreamer who one day decided to write down what the voices in her head were telling her. Years later, she’s still at it, and the number of heroes and heroines waiting for their happily ever after have grown. As a result, you’ll find her typing frantically at all hours of the day or night as she brings their stories to life.

When she’s not lost in her imagination, she’s busy being a wife, mother, and chemist. Yes, she might run on caffeine some days as she juggles all her roles, but that’s okay. She loves coffee.

Nancy resides in Pennsylvania with her amazing husband, their three smart and independent children, and a mini zoo. She has a dog who follows her everywhere, two cats she’s allergic to, a snake she’s still not sure how she ended up with, a pet mouse (because doesn’t everyone have a pet mouse?), a turtle who used to be a school pet, two tortoises who are kind on her allergies, and a senior guinea pig who shares her office. Her other interests include tattoos, animals, muscle cars, and mythology.

Why a closed-door pen name?

For years, readers of my Shifter World series have been asking for tamer versions of my books to recommend to their family and friends who love shifters but take a hard pass on open-door intimacy and harsh language. I’ve listened and delivered. Now, Nancy’s fans can encourage just about everyone to get lost in her Shifter World by sharing Dana’s Royals and Alphas series (the tamer versions of the Royal-Kagan series) and Dana’s Agents of Shifter Affairs series (the tamer versions of the Shifter Affairs series).

A note on what closed-door means:
• The door has been closed on explicit intimate scenes
• These books still have kissing and references to what happened behind the closed door.
• No harsh language
• BUT…there is still violence depicted (fight scenes). Also, some dark topics, such as rape and abuse, are discussed. HOWEVER, these scenes are NEVER shown. Darkness is a part of the Shifter World but through the love and friendships developed in these books, everyone (including the most damaged soul) will find peace and most importantly a happily ever after.

Writing as Dana Archer, I will be releasing each Shifter World book as a “Royals and Alphas” title or an “Agents of Shifter Affairs” title.

Because I believe love has no boundaries, not all pairings are “traditional”. There are a couple male-female-male romances but the same “closed-door” rules apply as in every other Dana Archer title. Love is love is love. Getting in the way of the heart isn’t something I can do and still be true to myself.

You might be asking—why a pen name? Well, I never, ever want to deceive my fans, and I have some wonderfully committed “one-click” readers who will snap up every Nancy Corrigan title and I don’t want anyone buying one of my titles only to discover it’s a closed-door version of a title they already own. Transparency is super important to me so “Nancy Corrigan writing as Dana Archer” is proudly displayed on all of Dana’s covers. A note referencing the steamier version is also included on each book’s product description.
