About Donnalyn

Suspense thrillers that make you go, "WHAT?!" are my thing. I hope my audience enjoys the sensational ride of "feels" I try to plant in my suspense thriller stories!

In 2019, I completed two feature films '"for hire" which are to be released in late 2020 -- two different production companies. One is a thriller/drama and the other a fantasy film.

Currently, I am working for hire on an historical fantasy feature which we hope to complete and release by the end of this year.

GOALS for my ORIGINAL SCRIPTS: Production Co./Producers needed for both my feature mystery horror (creature feature) Shunned and my mystical/drama one-hour TV pilot Sketches. Please take a peek at their loglines below.

The first two of my quirky novels are on the market, but the last volume of this trilogy is still to come...Winter 2020. They are part of a series with the MOST UNUSUAL NARRATION, providing the audience with an unexpected lens for considering the harsh and violent realities of the real world. Feel free to check out The Teddy Bear Chronicles (NOT a children's series!). Volume I is HOPE IN PARIS! and Volume II is CHLOE's CRUSADE.

WHAT comes later? Hopefully, a manager!

I'm so happy to be on STAGE 32 and excited to see more of what this community has to offer. Hopefully, I will have something helpful to offer others as well!

Unique traits: I make fantastic pies from scratch and have oddly quick reflexes.
