Donna and Maggie talk about the value of an MFA, how she’s found success with Facebook Ads, the role libraries have played in her life, and how she once spotted her fictional character at a coffee shop while traveling in Michigan.
A writer from Maryland whose fiction and nonfiction pieces have been published in Adelaide Literary Magazine, Scarlet Leaf Review, Columbia Magazine, and the Baltimore Sun, Donna is a previous award-winning journalist and video writer-producer. A graduate of the University of Tampa MFA in Creative Writing, she authored Coffee Killed My Mother and is currently working on a second novel. When not writing, she enjoys hiking and listing to live music--especially one of her husband's bands. She credits her grade school teacher, Sister Madeline Cecilia with discovering (and inspiring) her writing abilities.
