About the Author
A Michigan native who studied writing in school, Donna first came to Vegas to make costumes and soon was weaving the stories she heard in the back of the girls' dressing room into her first novel. Now she is the author of The Alexandra Merritt Mysteries, which include 'The Last Two Aces in Las Vegas', 'The Las Vegas Desert Flower', 'The Las Vegas Special', 'Rough Ride in Vegas', 'M.I.A. Las Vegas' and the recently released "The Las Vegas Sophisticate'.
Donna has written several other stand-alone thrillers, 'Desperate Ambition', about a political assassination, 'The Right Society', about a devout Christian family that moves into a religious community and finds it's easier to get in than it is to get out, and The Other Hand, about a famous athlete who leaves his family for a young, virginal girl. Shortly after they divorce, she winds up slaughtered. He is the primary suspect, but not the only one. Donna has a popular series of historical romances, The Manhattan Stories, 'Jessica', 'Pillsbury Crossing', 'The Cabin', and 'Kimimela'. A fifth in this series will be released soon.
Her light-hearted work,' Conversations With Skip', is the story of a shelter dog adopted by a young woman having trouble sleeping after her divorce. With his unusual ability to communicate, he is soon running her life, arranging her romances, and teaching her to laugh again.
Her most popular novel, 'Maude', the story of her Grandmother, is a #1 best-seller on Amazon and has spent multiple weeks on the Wall Street Journal's Top-10 list. 'Maude' is now available as an audiobook, was recently released in Italian and is currently being translated into Russian and German for upcoming international editions.
She has also written three screenplays, a stage play, poetry, short stories, and a children's story.
Donna stills takes occasional classes at UNLV and at writer's conferences and is an active member of the Anthem Author's in Henderson, NV.

expert, she raises a garden to carry them over in the winter. The garden was started in the fall. I live in the midwest and I really need her to tell me how you can start a garden late fall or summer and have it produce enough for 4 people. I got a real sugar rush from this book. If your whole idea is to escape from every bit of reality and live in that delusion of everything is wrapped up in a pretty bow then please read this book as for me I am reading something that will not rot my teeth. Please try Page from a Tennessee Journal by Francine Thomas Howard.
The story was well developed. I actually found it hard to put it down! This is the second book of her's that I've enjoyed! The first was MAUDE - a
true story about her grandmother (who led, what I felt, was a very tragic life). It seems a lot of bad things happen to some people and then there are those who somehow skate thru with the blessings of not having the tragedies.
they would be famous for all time. I appreciate the price, but would pay more. I usually won't buy a book this short;
After reading Maude I put this author on my must read list. Of course Maude couldn't have the happy ending I would
liked fleshed out more. I was so happy God gave her romantic love to a good man (Jessica).
