Author: Donna June Cooper

A debut author with her first book, More Than Magic, available from Samhain Publishing, DONNA JUNE COOPER writes contemporary paranormal romance with a very subdued and special magic and a definite emphasis on the romance. The Books of the Kindling focus on Woodruff Mountain, the ancient power beneath it, and the family that has hidden its secrets for centuries.

The granddaughter of a Virginia coal miner and great-great-granddaughter of one of the Muskogee people, Donna was raised in the shadows of the Appalachian Mountains, in the heavenly hills and valleys of East Tennessee - a gorgeous setting that plays a major role in her writing and her passion for the environment. But she was lured away from her green mountains by an admittedly gorgeous Italian guy, who became her husband, and she now swelters in the sultry heat of Texas. In spite of the heat, Donna enjoys being walked by her Jack Russell Terrier (if you know Jacks, you understand). She also loves belly dancing (excellent exercise and lots of shiny costumes), going to Renaissance Faires (more costumes!), reading way too much (romance, of course), spending time on too many social networking sites, and writing, writing, writing because she must!
