Patricia A. (Portia) Donahue (DAmboise)
Portia was born in Canada and fortunate to be immersed in its French romanticism. In her youth she aspired to be an actress particularly in love story films. Although this did not come to pass, she discovered her gift for writing. She has published in other genres.
An early admirer of Lady Cartland, the grand dame of romance writing, Portia, along with her high school girlfriends, delighted in sketching out heroines, and their lovers. From that early start she has brought together her own adventurous world travels, and her abiding interest in history to conceive the story of Claudia. She holds the belief that sincere love is the essence of enduring relationships, and that love does surmount obstacles in its way.
Portia teaches writing, fiction and non-fiction, at post-secondary level, and has presented, and given workshops on Romance Writing at Writers' Fairs.
For such services, she welcomes you to contact her at: firstname.lastname@example.org
