Donna moved to Michigan in 1971 when she married and left her hometown of Brockport, New York. She began penning novels in 1982 while working full time for an electronics firm in Grand Rapids.
She resigned from her job in 1984 following a contract offer for her first book. Since then, Thomas Nelson Publishers, Zondervan Publishing House, Guideposts, and Bigwater Publishing have published her novels. Her husband, Fred, a former American History teacher, shares her enthusiasm for history.

In October 2015 Donna became a permanent resident of New Mexico.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16. He considered this to be the greatest message in all the Bible—that long ago, God had become the father of Jesus, nurturing and loving him from infancy to manhood; that God had endowed his son with an important mission—to bring His love to all the world; that God had sacrificed his precious son in a cruel, painful death on the cross.
