Biography

Donna has spent much of her adult life writing something for someone. Therefore it seemed logical to combine her writing experience with her love for people, Jesus Christ and His Word.

As a journalist, her works include dozens of online magazine and newspaper articles. As an indie author her works include the non-fiction ebook series entitled, "Gripped for Glory," - a collection of biblical biographies of individuals who transformed their world by sharing personal testimonies. Through the aide of Personal Application questions each of these short works encourages public evangelism making this series a great resource for small group bible studies. Several more biblical biographies are planned for this series.

Donna is super excited at the launch of a new Christian youth fiction series entitled, "Divine Commissions." Filled with exciting real-to-life adventures of ordinary people, epic struggles between angels and demons, good and evil, right and wrong, and of eternal destinies hanging in the balance, Divine Commissions chronicles the stories of Eli and Jasmine - Servants of the Most High God as they intervene in the affairs of mankind to save souls.

Volume III, "The Power of a Legacy" was the first in the series to be released. Volume IV, "Messiah's Message" is now availale. Volume II, "The Stone of Truth" will be uploaded by mid November, 2011.

Donna also posts regular articles to her personal blog, http://grippedforglory.blogspot.com. Containing thought-provoking articles examining a broad range of human experiences through the lens of Biblical truth, Donna encourages Christians to turn their painful past into testimonies for God's glory.

When she is not pounding the keys, Donna loves hanging out with the grandkids, gardening, walking, praying, serving the saints and watching old movies.
