Donna Siggers was among the top ten authors in her genre of Thrillers, nominated for the Author Academy Awards, placing her on a global stage. This prestigious event took place in Ohio on 26th October 2018, where she presented the synopsis of her book, BROKEN, along with the other successful nominees. With over 500 entries it is a great honour that her work has this recognition. Donna is truly humbled that Broken won the category-- please see the images from the event on the gallery page.
Book two of the Warwick Cooper Thrillers, BETRAYAL, is in the final stages of completion and will be released later in 2018. BETRAYAL continues the story-line with some dark twists that will shock and have you on the edge of your seats. Bringing you to her home county of Essex, among other places, Donna introduces you to some of the locations close to her heart. With London on her doorstep, the city will always feature in her novels.
LOST SOUL: Poetry From A Broken Mind And My Journey Of Recovery is an autobiographical account of Donna's recovery from her head injury and will be available in 2019. It wasn't a decision taken lightly to make public this very personal account but Donna feels that she can make a difference to others through telling her story. She would also like to take her story to another level and give motivational talks that will enable others hope in the face of adversity.
Here is a short extract from Broken:
'Fighting every instinct to sob, Mel focused on the positives of her situation. Positives were hard to find but she’d had plenty of time to think of what they could be. She’d found two and was hanging on to them. She was alive and if she didn’t sob, she could breathe.'
