Donna Munrois the indie author of contemporary women’s fiction ‘The Zanzibar Moon’ and ‘Kendwa’s Secret’. ‘Elephant Creek’ is due for release in 2020. Though the three books are a series, each is stand-alone.
She is a lover of stories with strong romantic element and plenty of heat. “If it doesn’t get me squirming (in a good way) the writing isn’t doing its job.”
Her love of writing began in primary school with ‘The Mouse with the Musical Ears’. It’s a story long-lost. It is currently being re-written- a foray into children’s literature.
Donna is a prolific freelance writer who has been featured in national magazines like ‘The Australian Women’s Weekly’, ‘Woman’s Day’, ‘Club Life’, as well as book-length collaborations and anthologies. Her first big gig was editor/writer for surf lifestyle magazine ‘Wax ‘n’ Wind’ in the late 80s. She currently works as Administrative Officer for Romance Writers of Australia. A woman of many creative talents, her choice, outside publishing is finding old furniture and revamping it.
Favourite hero: Tarzan. Favourite MC: Skeeter in ‘The Help’. Favourite all-time book: ‘A Man Cannot Cry’ by Goria Keverne. Favourite recent book: ‘Country at Heart’ by Mandy Magro. Favourite place: Home. Favourite place to write: Home office. Favourite Vices: Peanut Butter and too much sunshine. Favourite food: Peanut Butter. Favourite other thing: Fitness and health.
Today, Donna lives on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia with her husband of 30 years (yes, her own HEA romance), youngest son and a neurotic Staffy (writer’s sidekick). She’s a mum to three strapping men, and a nana. No one in the family gets the writing gig but they support it.
You’ll often find her on a beach with her toes in the sand and a book in her hand. Motto: There is power in combining knowledge and imagination.
