About the author

Hi Delightful Readers,


I'm the author of The Zanzibar Moon, Kendwa's Secret and Elephant Creek. In August my second self-fiction book will launch How to Self-Publish in Oz. Two further suspense manuscripts are complete and will possibly be traditionally published. This means I may be going hybrid (wait and see).

My Story

I've been writing since second grade when I wrote The Mouse with the Musical Ears. There are four manuscripts sitting in the bottom of my filing cabinet, four published books, four ghostwritten books, numerous articles and short stories in national publications and anthologies, and lastly two more complete manuscripts. You might say, I love writing, and you'd be correct.

I love family, sunshine and moonbeams, beaches, sand between my toes, salty swims, animals, children's giggles, a morning coffee, cheese, avocado and Peanut Butter - and of course - books, books, books and writing.

When you read, do you want to smile, laugh, cry and feel deep emotion? Well, you've come to the right place. There's mostly happy ever afters - but you never know.

As for How to Self-Publish in Oz - A step-by-step guide for Australian's planning to self-publish a book; this guide is for all the writers who don't know how, but want to find the best way to indie publish. I've packed a lot in this guide to help your self-publishing business can prosper. I list the common pitfalls, publishing steps, advice, checklists and (best of all) you'll receive free templates to help your business.

A fact you may not know: I'm not quite 5 foot but don't underestimate me for my shortness.

Love, hugs, happiness and reading,

Donna xo
