I met Donna through her blog.
She was not someone whose blog I had followed for years, like my friend Judith who you’ll meet later this month. Donna was a “random” find. I was visiting Cuenca, Ecuador and looking around online, as I often do when seeking information. I came across Donna’s blog . Donna, at that time, was living here and writing about life’s adventures. I posted some innocuous comment on one of her posts and mentioned that I was currently in her fair city.
Within a few hours, Donna responded to that comment with an invite for lunch. How cool was that? We met, we talked. And talked. And talked. We talked about Ecuador, about ourselves and about Donna’s desire to create a writer’s support group in Cuenca.
What we didn’t talk about was that Donna, as D.B. McNicol, was a published author.
Imagine how charmed I was to discover that Donna was more interested in getting to know me, in sharing her own story with me than she was in telling me about her success as an author. That’s just the kind of gal she is.
A year later, the support group was, and continues to be, a big success! While I had moved down here, Donna moved back to the U.S., so, ships passing in the night? We connected and remain friends to this day.
You can find Donna’s information, samples and links for her books here on her website as well as follow her blog there. Donna is participating in the A to Z challenge with a topic of “Oh, the places we will go.” I’m sorry, did I forget to mention the thousands of miles she has put on her motorcycle, or her RV, or via cruise ships?
