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', 'Kimimela', 'D'Arcy Curran' and 'Curran Glen'. A seventh 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 Russian and is currently being translated into German and Slovak 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.
