Donna never runs out of ideas
Everything is fuel for the fire of Donna’s imagination. Everyday occurrences become plot twists. News stories prompt a flurry of “what if” questions: What if that happened here? How would I feel if that happened to me or someone I know? How would I respond in that situation? Some authors tell you the secret to their success is that they write every day. Donna’s suggestion to potential writers is this: don’t think of writing or story-telling as a separate activity. Life is the story. You just need to capture all the fascinating, split-second, here and gone moments of it! Her advice is simple – carry a notebook and pen with you at all times. Or have an app on your phone where you can enter notes. Whatever you use, be ready. Ideas come at the speed of life! Don’t lose them!
Donna writes in many genres
Donna’s philosophy has always been that life is too interesting to confine yourself to just one genre. Poetry was her first love and continues to be her passion, but she also writes non-fiction books and articles that are focused on educating and helping others. Novels are a more recent interest, an outlet for both her imagination and her sense of humor. If you think murder can’t be funny, you need to read her books. They reflect Donna’s other philosophy – that life is too short to be taken seriously!
Donna loves to help others
Donna used to think writing a novel was beyond her abilities until 2010 when she accepted a challenge to write a novel in a month. That experience reinforced her belief that everyone is capable of writing, a philosophy she loves to share with others. She loves to encourage new authors, young and old, and is always ready with positive feedback and helpful suggestions. Her book on job hunting was born from a desire to help people seeking employment but who don’t have money to spend (waste) on employment counselors. Her “7 Stages of Teeth” series was created to help people going through the process of getting dentures. Her passion and the underlying desire in everything she does is to make the world a better place.
