New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of  romaginative fiction, DONNA MICHAELS writes military romance full of humor, heat, and heart. One book was even hand-drawn into a Japanese translation. Now if only she could read it...

It’s all my mother’s fault.

She read to me before I could read and opened up that magical world where I still reside today. Then came television and movies. I had three avenues that fed my imagination…and boy could I eat! As you no doubt figured out, this lead to my writing career. Thanks to the ton of voices in my head, I’m a NY Times, USA Today, and Amazon Bestselling, award winning,  hybrid author of Romaginative Fiction. I write hot, humorous, heartwarming romance as an indie but also through Entangled Publications, Twisted Page Press, LLC, and The Wild Rose Press.

I’m happily married to a military man for over 35 years and have rightfully earned the nickname Lucy...and sometimes Ethel. We live in northeastern PA and have four children, two granddaughters, one grandson with another due in October (I'm so blessed), and several rescued cats. Michael was in in the Army National Guard since before we graduated. The Guard has been a part of our lives right from the start. It was only natural for the military to spill into my writing. ♥

You already know my mom inspired my love of reading, but it was my dad who got me hooked on movies. Even now, if I had the time, I could happily go from one movie to another all day long. They are the reason I love mixed genre and why I don't stick to just one in my writing.

Well, that’s about it. Thanks for getting to know me a little better. Remember, keep reading to your children. The journey you’re igniting is precious. And the next time you’re at the movies, turn around. I just might be the person sitting behind you. No, not the one throwing popcorn (it’s too expensive to waste), I’m the one already imagining the sequel.

Have a great day and thanks for reading!
