Donna has been writing since she was in the single digits when she first realized she needed to do something about all the thoughts in her head. After a stint with bad poetry she finally found her way to novels, mainly of the young adult fantasy variety. When she's not cranking out more stories she works a regular 9 to 5, reads anywhere from 2 to 3 books a week, drinks copious amounts of tea, eats way too much, and makes her own beauty products because her skin turns into a sentient hive if she uses anything else. This is mostly because she lives in the desert where the air siphons water clean out of her. She lives with a man named Steve and several quadrupeds: three cats named Renfield, Sam, and Dean; and a MinPin named Malfoy.

I don't believe in writer's block so I don't deal with it!

That's not to say life doesn't happen or you don't get stuck in a scene or write yourself into a corner. I've had all of those happen to me, but I don't consider them writer's block.

I just got married last week. Do you think I wrote anything for the previous couple of weeks? Not a chance. Not because I couldn't; there just wasn't time enough in my day to do it.

For those writing SNAFUs, if I'm stuck on something I either take a break and write something completely different in order to purge my brain or push myself through the scene to get the words on the page. They could be total crap words, but I get it out, get past it, see where the story's going and where that moment needs to be, and come back to it.

I've never not been able to write something. Anything. I've never been without ideas. I've never been blocked.(less)

Although if I happen to be reading something and a romance comes along that isn't central to the plot I can usually get on board with it if it isn't awful.

That being said I think Alina and Mal from Leigh Bardugo's Grisha Trilogy are probably one of my favorite couples. While there's certainly a thrill to something like insta-love, or some kind of whirlwind, swept-off-the-feet relationship, I find more validity in those that have been simmering for years. Alina and Mal were friends forever before it developed into something more. I just find that incredibly realistic and it tugged at my heart a little. (less)

As an Author, I Have a Problem with Negative Reviews

How many click bait points do I get for that blog title? How many reviewer buttholes clenched just seeing that and immediately were like YOU’RE A BAD PERSON? I can’t help myself. I had to.


Of course I don’t inherently have a problem with negative reviews. I have a slight issue with people being dicks in negative reviews (c’mon guys, you can give a negative review without being an asshole about it),
