About the Author:
Local author, Donna Bocks, is a remarkable woman, author and motivational speaker. A storyteller all her life, Donna found the courage, at age 78, to bring her six novels up from the basement and into the hands of the reader. In October of 2010 Donna published her first four novels; Lavender Blues, Texas Tango, Came to Say Good-Bye, and Heartbeat of Home. One year later, in October of 2011, Donna released The Purple Prairie Schooner and Twin Trees. Donna is currently writing her seventh novel.

Most of Donna’s novels are set in her home state of Michigan where she says, “Stories happen walking every day in the neighborhood. The houses begin to speak and the stories grow street by street, house by house.”
