"You might not know my name," Donna says, "but chances are, you've read one of my books. If you've ever been stuck at an airport, or looking for something to read at the beach, mine was probably the book you pulled off the rack."
Her most recent titles are the Ladybug Farm series: A YEAR ON LADYBUG FARM (March 2009) and AT HOME ON LADYBUG FARM (October 2009) and LOVE LETTERS FROM LADYBUG FARM (October 2010) and KEYS TO THE CASTLE (January 2011), all from Berkley Books. She is also known for the Raine Stockton Dog Mystery series--SMOKY MOUNTAIN TRACKS, RAPID FIRE and GUNSHY--and, under the pseudonym Donna Boyd, THE PASSION and THE PROMISE. All are now in paperback in bookstores everywhere.
