Donna Galanti once ran away to the forest, her favorite place, but decided home had far less bugs. She now writes stories where heart and hope meet adventure and is the author of the JOSHUA AND THE LIGHTNING ROAD series and the UNICORN ISLAND series. She also judges fiction contests, teaches writers, presents at schools, and enjoys nature treks and historical museums (especially old prisons!). She’s lived in fun locations including England where she attended school in a Harry Potter-like castle, a New Hampshire campground, and in Hawaii where she served as a U.S. Navy photographer. Donna lives with her family and two crazy cats in an old farmhouse but dreams of one day returning to a castle.
