Donna was born and raised in central California among agriculture and oil fields.
She likes coffee (a lot), dresses with pockets and chunky black boots. And she has a cool scar on her arm from glass blowing. She lives in Washington State with her husband, two daughters, two dogs and a frog. There is a haunted forest behind her house. (The haunted part may or may not be true. She lies.)
She is represented by Regina Brooks at Serendipity Literary.
