Member Since
April 2012

Having learned to read by age four, Davonne hasn't stopped since. At age seven, they read The Yearling and learned something wonderful, books were populated by real people in real places. They never went back to the kids section again.

Their mother, recognizing the need for more substantial reading material, introduced them to Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov and Jules Vern. Thus a life-long love of science fiction was born. It was after reading Ender's Game in middle school that the desire to write became overwhelming.

However it would be nearly ten years before their first full novel Sorrow's Fall was completed.

Davonne currently lives in Ozark, MO with their spouse and three young children in whom they are instilling a health love of all things g

The Paradoxical Commandments

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.”
Kent M. Keith, The Silent Revolution: Dynamic Leadership in the Student Council
