Donna Fernstrom

Publisher info

I have been a ravenous bookworm of a reader, and casual writer, since grade school. I began practicing energy working and psionics (psychic development) in my mid-teens, and studied psionics under a mentor for a number of years in my 20s. I also breed ball pythons and other reptiles. I enjoy camping, fishing, observing and identifying wildlife, and organic gardening.

I've a couple of non-fiction metaphysical books, under the pen name 'Winged Wolf', and now I'm writing fiction. I hope you'll enjoy it!

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Livonia, Michigan, but spent many summers of my childhood further north, in the small town of Mio, Michigan, with my grandparents. In the middle of a Jack pine forest, just a block away from the clear, cold Au Sable river, my love of nature was fostered. I think this reverence for the natural world does come through in my writing.
When did you first start writing?
I wrote in childhood, for fun, and in my teen years as well, but never very much. I was great at getting a story down, so long as it wasn't too long, but I was terrible at following through and polishing it up. Of course, I was always given a formula to follow; write an outline, then a rough draft, then a second draft, and so on. I hated outlines, and I hated drafts. I wrote a lot of non-fiction articles online, for free. In 2006, I finally decided to put together a couple of non-fiction metaphysical books, and that went very well. It refreshed my interested in writing. So, I wrote a couple of fan-fics for fun, and then found myself writing my first novel. I got about halfway through it, and then my 'mojo' died. I couldn't write anything of length again for six years! In the autumn of 2012, I picked the half-finished novel back up... and finished it. Then finished a sequel. A novella. Several short stories. Book 3 is done, now! No outlines. No drafts, because I can simply repair the original document, now that we're in the computer era. It works... for me. :D
