The Library Journal says of Donna's latest book, "The Christmas Star" (2018), "Second chances abound in this story, resulting in a Christmas gift worth waiting for... This sweet tale of love and overcoming obstacles offers a festive atmosphere readers will savor."

Donna lives in Franklin, Tennessee, with her husband, Troy, and their children, Grace, Kate and David.
