aka Donna Clayton

Growing up the third child of fiveyes, smack dab in the middle and the only girl to bootDonna Fasano had no idea she would one day be a published author. Her story-telling talents came to light when she conjured lively and elaborate tales of pure blarney (yes, she has a bit of Irish in her blood) for, first, her youngest brother, and years later, her children.Still happily married to her high school sweetheart, she is the mother of two grown sons who have flown the coop.

She and her husband share their home with Jake, a black and white, couch-potato border collie, and Roo, a spotted red and cream Australian cattle dog that looks (and acts) like a wild dingo. Donna's spare time is spent reading, walking the countryside and beach, or trying out new recipes from one of the many cookbooks she has collected over the years. Oh, and one night a week she and her hubby nab some alone time from their busy schedules, enjoying a nice glass of wine and a videopreferably a romantic comedy. Donna also volunteers loads of hours to her small church.
