Donna O’Donnell Figurski
Donna is a wife, mother, granny, teacher, playwright, actor, director, stage manager, playwright, writer, photographer, picture-book reviewer, and caregiver for her husband and best friend, David. Pheww!
She is also the author of Prisoners without Bars: A Caregiver’s Tale, a three-times-award-winning and heart-wrenching love story. She keeps plenty bust by hosting an international radio show, “Another Fork in the Road” on the Brain Injury Radio Network, and is the creator and writer for her award-winning blog, Surviving Traumatic Brain Injury (survivingtraumaticbraininjury.com).
Though, having already published four children’s stories with Scholastic Education, her dream is to publish a picture-book manuscript in this lifetime. She has been writing picture books since the late 1990s
