Donna B. McNicol retired after 30+ years working in the IT industry. She spent many of those years writing technical documents and user instructions. In 1996 she tried moonlighting in freelance writing; she spent the next ten years writing for such online sites as The Mining Company, Suite101, BellaOnline and About.com.
A year into widowhood, she decided to ride the 48 continental US states on her Harley-Davidson motorcycle, solo. Over five months and several trips she managed to ride through 42 states, covering over 27,000 miles.
In 2006 she decided to try her hand in the world of blogging. She now maintains several blogs on varying topics including her writing and an upcoming two month motorcycle ride via Route 66.
Donna currently lives and travels full-time with her husband, Stu, and their pup, Sadie, along with their two Harley-Davidson motorcycles in a 41' fifth wheel toy hauler trailer pulled by their medium duty Freightliner.
She started dabbling in fiction writing in 2012, found and fell in love with flash fiction and is currently working on her first two novels, a mystery set in Pennsylvania and a romance set in Montana.
