Author has written 25 stories for Fantasy, Sci-Fi, and Horror.

The only personal information I will give is that I am married and live in Southern California.

Over 40 of my stories, mostly science fiction and fantasy, have appeared in print and online magazines that include Alien Skin, Skyline, Midnight Times, and Tales of the Talisman. I've also reviewed children's books for School Library Journal.

I recently published a young adult novel entitled Halfling under the pen name Donna Marie Robb. Teenaged orphan Remmi Clearwater lives in a parallel world called Dreamearth, which people from Realearth visit when they sleep. Unfortunately for Remmi, she is a Halfling, the child of a Dreamearth mother and a Realearth father. When a corrupt leader comes to power in Dreamearth, he vows to do away with all Halflings . . . starting with Remmi. Halfling is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

I also have an account on fanfiction.net:

In addition to writing, I enjoy reading, hiking, and traveling to exotic foreign countries.
