Donna is giving away a signed copy of The Freedom of Letting Go. Friday, July 27, we will draw a name from those who leave comments on this post. I hope you win!
“I cannot remember a time I didn’t want to write,” Donna says. “I wrote my first poem out of necessity when I was nine years old. It was Mother’s Day and I didn’t have money to buy my mother a gift so I wrote her a poem. The second one I wrote at the age of 10 for Memorial Day. Our minister distributed copies to church members as they walked into the service. I wrote my third poem at the age of 11 when my dad walked out of his 22-year marriage to my mother. I found even at that young age I could express my feelings on paper.”
