News and Tweets


At Risk is based on true events. Each of the events shared within the book will be fictitious - a twisted version of events unrecognisable to those who were there at the time.  

Sofia, the main character will take you on a journey that will not be comfortable. She will be highlighting a serious issue that is very close to my heart - something I have lived through and until now quietly campaign for. Its a story I need to share for two reasons, firstly I didn't have the confidence to speak out before but that has changed and secondly I've no intention of hurting the person who placed me at risk. That is water under the bridge and my intention is to create a damn good story because I write what I know AND to accompany that use my knowledge to help others facing such dire circumstances. 


2019 is already proving to be a great year for BROKEN - (USA) have handpicked BROKEN to have on their website for twelve months. This means free promotion on Twitter every other day and on Facebook also. There might also be more news to share in the future so watch this space! Steve has also inducted Donna into his Hall of Fabulous Authors - you can see the link to his site below and also on the Friends of DS page.



2018 was a fantastic year for Donna and also for BROKEN! After entering a competition Donna became a top ten finalist and had to visit Columbus, Ohio USA where she delivered a series of speeches about her debut novel. Delighted that she won the "Thriller" category Donna now has global recognition in writing and publishing excellence.  She also attended the Igniting Souls Conference while there - not only has this experience changed her approach to her author life but to her personal one too. Donna may have Tweeted "From Lost Soul to Soul on Fire" a few times over this period. The conference and Award host, Kary Oberbrunner was on a mission to ignite 1M souls on fire and Donna was, at the time, writing her biography LOST SOUL!  Donna shares the link to Kary's site below for anyone interested his work. She placed her trust in him not ever having completed any of his paid courses and was treated like family.

My association with London Crime begun with Jim Fletcher asking if he could include Broken on his website. From there Donna and Jim became friends and she is now a proud member of the team! 

BROKEN and BETRAYAL continue to be a part of and Donna would like to thank Jim Fletcher for all the wonderful support that he gives her both professionally and personally. 

BETRAYAL supports the LondonCrime logo on the back cover alongside her own and Donna is delighted to have been the first author to have advertised the site on her books. She urges everyone to visit the site for London-based crime thrillers, non-fiction books and DVDs in support of her writing and film colleagues. Jim has very kindly added LOST SOUL to his site too "because he can" despite it having nothing to do with London crime.

Donna is delighted to be able to share that this long thought about book has now been published.  It wasn't an easy decision to have made for her but she hopes that by sharing her reality it will help others.   Writing and publishing this very personal side of her life has been a journey in itself and Donna would like to thank everyone who has supported her - and give special thanks to Sheena Cundy, Lewis Hastings, Jim Fletcher, David P Perlmutter, Mark Sippings, Wayne Clark and Nicole Glozier for helping her make this decision.
