About this author

A busy wife and mother of three (2 daughters and the family dog), Donna Alward believes hers is the best job in the world: a combination of stay-at-home mom and romance novelist.

An avid reader since childhood, Donna always made up her own stories. She completed her Arts Degree in English Literature in 1994, but it wasn't until 2001 that she penned her first full-length novel, and found herself hooked on writing romance. In 2006 she sold her first manuscript.

Donna loves being back on the East Coast of Canada after nearly 12 years in Alberta where her Harlequin career began, writing about cowboys and the west. Donna's debut Romance, Hired by the Cowboy, was awarded the Booksellers Best Award in 2008 for Best Traditional Romance.

One of her romantic suspenses that just sucked me in and wouldn’t let me go until the last page.


I was living in Calgary at the time and was home to New Brunswic...

Lovely, lovely story that was just perfect for an afternoon in the park in the shade of a tree. Super likable characters, solid, believable conflict and a sighworthy resolution made this a wonderful read.

I wish I could send books to everyone! However, I get a lot of requests, and I only get a certain number of author copies. I do have bookplates, though, and if you like I can send you one for one of your books!
