Interview with Donna LeClair

When did you first start writing?
At the age of three, I remember watching my Mother scribble on sheets of unmarked stationery. I thought she was a magician; the idea she could create and communicate with the flick of her wrist language that existed in her mind and imagination. The thought her scribbles could breathe life into that which laid dormant. The reality they could transport unconscious thoughts into the conscious realm of here and now. There and then. This dimension, that dimension. Out of the questionability into the reasonability. The probabilities mesmerized me so as soon as I learned what the squiggly lines were, I picked up a pencil and wrote her a note of gratitude.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Originally from a small town in the Mid-west, I relocated to California and scored employment as a personal assistant to the wife of an American media mogul, philanthropist, and heir on Forbes list of the 400 wealthiest people in the world. My encounter under their employment and the revelations of their règime and entitlement thereof sent me down a rabbit hole, questioning their sanity and that of my own. Ten years ago, they left me in the street for dead. The last chapter details my struggle after a craniotomy for sanity, normality, and my own identity. The reason I wrote ‘Immunity’: when asked by prosecutors why they left me in the street for dead, the response was, “Who gives a fuck about Donna LeClair. She isn’t anybody.” My name is Donna LeClair. I am not an American media mogul, philanthropist or heir on Forbes 400 list, but I am a person. I can think. I have a voice. I have rights, and none of us are immune from the law and ALL OF US are entitled to a life worthy of respect, peace, and love. My name is Donna LeClair and I am the author of Immunity.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean EVERYTHING to me as I know without the gift of their time and honor of their presence, my words are merely scribbles on a page. My dear readers bring life to my words and meaning to my life. Their belief lifts me up to heaven high and encourages me to become a better person and example; after all, my life, my words, my literature is not about me, but making the world a better place.

We are the ghosts of our children's future and I take that responsibility seriously. I write for THEM.

I am truly honored to serve my fans. I am grateful. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart ... THANK YOU!
Describe your desk
My desk is my altar. Displayed are all of the treasures gifted to me by my children, grandchildren, loved ones, friends, and mentors. When I suffer from lack of words, I hear their whispers in my ear and know they are beside me, behind me and holding me strong. I surround myself with music. I grew up in a huge household with lots of chatter so I need background noise. It fills the emptiness a writer can experience when engulfed in their little world of thought and imagination. Hanging above my desk is a cross and prayer beads. Periodically I raise my head, smile, and gives thanks. I know the difference between luck and belief.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing for me is knowing when I take my final breath, I did everything in my power to make this world a better place. I do not write just to write. I write because, honestly in my heart, I wish so much for all the little children. I hear their cries. I want to cuddle them in my arms, kiss their foreheads, and rock them to peace and happiness. That is joy to me. That is why I write. For them.
