About the Author

Donna Russo Morin's passion for the written word began when she was a child, took on a feminist edge as she grew through the sixties, and blossomed into a distinctive style of action-filled historical fiction. Donna earned two degrees from the University of Rhode Island, and all four of her currently available books are award winners. In addition to writing, teaching writing, and reviewing for literary journals, Donna works as a model and actor; highlights of her work include two seasons on Showtime's Brotherhood and an appearance in Martin Scorsese's The Departed. Donna is the proud mother of two sons, one a future opera singer, the other a future chef.
