Help with author bio?



 I updated my author bio for this new release. What do you think?
-----------------
New York Times bestselling author Dana Marton writes about smart, strong women and the alpha heroes they love, especially when those heroes are cops and military men. Luckily, her secret research source is always close by—her husband has served in the US Army, has been an EMT, and a fireman, a hunter, a trapper, and a number of other things he won’t admit to in public.

Dana’s small-town romantic suspense series set in Broslin Creek is based on her real life home in Pennsylvania, and has over one thousand positive reviews. Book one in the series, DEATHWATCH, is currently free.

She also writes an international romantic thriller series full of intrigue, danger and exotic locales, based on the investigators of the Civilian Personnel Recovery Unit. FORCED DISAPPEARANCE and FLASH FIRE are the first two books in this series.

Kirkus Reviews calls her writing “compelling and honest.” RT Book Review Magazine said, “Marton knows what makes a hero…her characters are sure to become reader favorites.” Her writing has been acclaimed by critics, called, “gripping,” “intense and chilling,” “full of action,” “a thrilling adventure,” and wholeheartedly recommended to readers. Dana is the winner of the Daphne du Maurier Award of Excellence, the Readers’ Choice Award, and Best Intrigue, among other awards. Her book, TALL, DARK, AND LETHAL was nominated for the prestigious Rita Award. DEATHSCAPE reached the #1 spot on Amazon’s Romantic Suspense Bestseller list.

Beyond being a bestselling author of romantic suspense thrillers, Dana also writes a popular fantasy romance series, Hardstorm Saga. Book 1, RELUCTANT CONCUBINE, spent 6 weeks at #1 on Amazon's fantasy romance list.

When not writing, Dana loves to browse antique shops and enjoys working in her flower garden, while fighting her addictions to reading, garage sales, coffee and chocolate. If you know a good twelve-step program to help her with any of that, she’d be interested in hearing about it! 

Keeping in touch with readers is Dana’s favorite part of being an author. Please connect with her via her web site (www.danamarton.com) or her Facebook page (www.facebook.com/danamarton).

I love every book that you have written. As far as getting an addiction group for you reading, chocolate and coffee, heck I call that a book club. In fact that is basically what our book club does after we read the book, we eat, chat and drink a beverage or two. Thanks for all of your books!!

I think the new bio is great but I found this paragraph just a bit confusing:

When not writing, Dana loves to browse antique shops and enjoys working in her flower garden, while fighting her addictions to reading, garage sales, coffee and chocolate. If you know a good twelve-step program to help her with any of that, she’d be interested in hearing about it!

I would move it a round a little:
When not writing or fighting her addictions to reading, garage sales, coffee and chocolate, Dana loves to browse antique shops and enjoys working in her flower garden. If you know a good twelve-step program to help her with any of that, she’d be interested in hearing about it!
