Strategic Planning -
The Cornerstone of your Success

Presented by Donna Alward

While bestselling author Donna Alward was busy studying Austen, Eliot and Shakespeare, she was also losing herself in the breathtaking stories created by romance novelists like LaVyrle Spencer, Judith McNaught, and Nora Roberts. Several years after completing her degree she decided to write a romance of her own and it was true love! Five years and ten manuscripts later she sold her first book and launched a new career. Since then, her heartwarming stories of love, hope, and homecoming have been translated into several languages, hit the bestseller lists and won awards. 

She currently lives on Canada’s east coast. When she’s not writing she enjoys reading (of course!), knitting, gardening, cooking…and is a Masterpiece Theater addict. She's a member of New Jersey Romance Writers, Romance Writers of Atlantic Canada, and is the current PAN Advisor to the RWA Board of Directors.
