An avid reader since childhood, Donna Alward always made up her own stories. She completed her arts degree in English literature in 1994, but it wasn’t until 2001 that she penned her first full-length novel and found herself hooked on writing romance. In 2006 she sold her first manuscript, and her debut novel, Hired by the Cowboy, was awarded the Booksellers Best Award in 2008 for Best Traditional Romance.
From her new home office in Nova Scotia, Donna loves being back on the east coast of Canada after nearly 12 years in Alberta where her Harlequin career began, writing about cowboys and the west. With the Atlantic Ocean only minutes from her doorstep, she has found a fresh take on life and promises even more great romances in the near future! A busy wife and mother of three (two daughters and the family dog), Donna believes hers is the best job in the world: a combination of stay-at-home mom and romance novelist.
