Born in northeast Ohio, Donald Squire has loved reading and writing since middle school. Squire has a degree in English from BYU in Utah and currently works as the Marketing Manager for a small manufacturing company.
His first full length novel took years to write and was mostly completed during lunch breaks when he would go to the local library.
Squire’s goal as a novelist is to create clean, fun adventures that anyone can read and trust the content is safe for any age.
What inspired you to write your first book?
I’ve wanted to be a writer for a long time, since I was a kid. For years I wrote short stories but my wife finally convinced me that I needed to just jump in and write a book. It was a learning experience and I’m grateful for her inspiration.
Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
I think so. When I was in 8th grade our English teacher had us write in journals every day. The idea was to be creative, to make stories from the prompts she would give us. For extra points we could read what we wrote to the class. I read every day. People would compliment me and comment about how I could write so much so fast. I like it. I think that’s when I first wanted to be a writer.
