About Dona

Dona Watson grew up with a book in one hand, dreaming about imaginary worlds of mystery and adventure. In high school, she found an old copy of "Sword at Sunset" by Rosemary Sutcliff in a used bookstore, fell in love with fantasy fiction and never looked back. She earned a Bachelor’s in English from Vanguard University and has worked for years as a full-time writer and editor. Her stories can be found online and in print.

What readers are saying


"I was quite reminded of R.A. Salvatore in your style and I see you have the same excellent ability to hook the reader. Good job!"


"Dona Watson's Angel Songs is a beautiful testament to God's love, and the spirit and magic of Christmas. A wonderful gift, and a very accessible author, Watson's 20 some odd stories shine the beauty of holiday magic. Some that send shivers, and others will leave you with a tear. An ideal stocking stuffer from this author. Just in time for Christmas."


"The weather outside may be frightful, but the stories, poems, and recipes you'll find in ANGEL SONGS are heartwarming and delightful. The stories vary in length from vignette to flash with a couple full-sized tales to boot -- my favorite being "Christmas Treasures". And the recipes... Can't wait to show them to the Mrs.! A perfect read for this time of year."
