“The more you know about something, the better care you can give it.”
About Donna Love

I love to write. My first attempt was in 3rd grade when I wrote  “Horses of the World,” which should have been my first clue that I should be an author.
I also love to read. When young, I read all the time. Black Beauty was my favorite book. I read it eight times!

My father loved to fish, and my mother loved my father so my sisters and I grew up outdoors along the coastal rivers and wilds of western Oregon. Through this I developed a deep admiration and respect for nature. I also enjoy painting, so in college I studied art education, which gave me the ability to “see.”  Then I married a forester who loves the outdoors. When our children were young, I found I had the ability to explain nature to them. I believe that the more you know about something, the better care you can give it, so I enjoy learning about new subjects. To learn about the subjects for each of my books, I study it until I understand it. Then I explain it. I think that’s why children, as well as adults, love my writing.
