Donna lives in the North East of England with her partner, and beautiful boxer dog, Freya.
She developed a love for reading from a young age and, for as long as she can remember, penning a book has been a dream.
This is what she has to say about writing her first novel:
‘Dithering about what to write was a massive obstacle. My reading taste is so eclectic. Vampires, serial killers, dystopian, Vikings, witches, history, travel, and autobiographies. The only genres I don’t read are spy fiction, westerns or chick lit comedy.
Oh! I know. I’ll write a chick lit comedy.’
After her Eureka moment, Donna decided to scrap her almost-finished, half-finished, ten chapters, and first-page attempts to concentrate on completing her debut book, Flip-flops, Fiesta & Flamenco. She is currently working on the second.
When not writing, Donna enjoys reading, travel, and cooking. She’s passionate about animals and considers herself a bit of a gin connoisseur.
Flip-Flops, Fiesta & Flamenco
Perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella, and Jill Mansell, Flip-flops, Fiesta & Flamenco is the first in a series of three romantic chick lit comedies.
‘If you enjoyed ‘Under a Tuscan Sun,’ you will love Flip-flops, Fiesta & Flamenco.’
Abby and Lou have been BFFs since the first day they met at uni. Drawn to each other – despite being opposites in both looks and personality – the women shared a flat, copious laughter, and dreams of living in the Spanish sunshine. A love of animals cemented their bond.
Undeterred by heartache and divorce, the friends remain closer than ever but feel that something is missing. Could Lou’s big win on an online bingo site and a decision to embark on a Spanish adventure be that ‘something?’
Flip-flops packed, Abby and Lou head off to sunnier climes, and the laughs begin. But it isn’t all sun, sangria, and serenity. Warring pets, new neighbours, cooking experiments, scary wildlife, and Santos, the escapee donkey, combine to make it an unforgettable summer.
Can their faithful friendship survive, or will the Mediterranean dream become a nightmare?
