Donna Girouard is an assistant professor of English at Livingstone College. She lives in North Carolina with her two rescue dogs and five rescue cats. When she's not teaching or writing, she works on her project vehicles: a 1978 Ford truck and a 1985 Pontiac Firebird.
Although her essays have been published in various literary magazines, The Other Side: Closing the Door is her first book-length collection.
Passionate about animal rescue, she is writing a nine book creative nonfiction children's series (The Adventures of Felix and His Furry Friends), part of the proceeds of which goes directly to specific animal rescue organizations.
She still hugs trees.

Unfinished Business

The assignment: the dramatic monologue, a presentation I usually discuss somewhere around mid-semester in my college-level Fundamentals of Speech classes because it can be a fun break from exams, as well as a stress-reliever for my students (and for me).
