About Donna R. Wood

"It is the function of art to renew our perception. What we are familiar with we cease to see. The writer shakes up the familiar scene, and, as if by magic, we see a new meaning in it." ~ Anais Nin

Life is a journey on which we all embark from the moment in which we take our first breath. Since the beginning of time, the scribes, the bards, or the writers have been tasked with the laborious endeavor of recording the journey of the human race. I am among these.

I am a writer of the abstract, and a relentless propagator of the metaphor. I am a reader of the classics, and the contemporary.

The prose I offer forth into the world are pieces of myself, pieces of the world. The world I knew, the world I know, and the world that may yet be. I am an independent author as my worlds are my own. These are the worlds which I wish to share with you, the reader.
