|Welcome Donna Galanti!
And so, without further ado, I'd like to introduce the newest member of Project Mayhem: Donna Galanti. We are thrilled to have her join our ranks. Here's her bio:
Donna Galanti wanted to be a writer ever since she wrote a murder mystery screenplay at seven and acted it out with neighborhood kids. She attended an English school then in a magical castle where she fell in love with the worlds of C.S. Lewis and Roald Dahl and her imagination ran wild in an itchy uniform (bowler hat and tie included!). She wrote her first fantasy there about Dodo birds, wizards, and a flying ship and has been writing fantasy ever since. She’s lived all over, including her family-owned campground in New Hampshire and Hawaii where she served as a U.S. Navy photographer. She now lives with her family and two crazy cats in an old farmhouse but she’s still wishing for a castle again. Donna is the author of the JOSHUA AND THE LIGHTNING ROAD series (Books 1 & 2, Month9Books 2015) and represented by Bill Contardi of Brandt & Hochman Literary Agents, Inc.
And here's more about JOSHUA AND THE LIGHTNING ROAD, coming from Month9Books in May 2015:
Twelve-year-old Joshua Cooper learns the hard way that lightning never strikes by chance when a bolt strikes his house and whisks away his best friend—possibly forever. To get him back, Joshua must travel the Lightning Road to a dark world where stolen human kids are work slaves ruled by the frustrated heirs of the Greek Olympians who come to see Joshua as the hero prophesied to restore their lost powers. New friends come to Joshua’s aid and while battling beasts and bandits and fending off the Child Collector, Joshua’s mission quickly becomes more than a search for his friend—it becomes the battle of his life.
Donna, we are so excited to have you joining us!! Viva la Mayhem!
