Donna Cook is an author, editor, and publishing consultant. Her epic fantasy adventure, Gift of the Phoenix, has won several awards both locally and nationally. She’s also published two series of contemporary romances under a pen name.
Donna is a co-founder of the Idaho Editor and Writers Association. She specializes in developmental and substantive editing, and is known for her ability to wrangle wayward plots into submission. As an author herself, she understands the emotional fortitude it takes to bring a novel to completion. She’s known for her insightful, thorough, blunt analysis and her ability to be cheerleader, comforter, or drill sergeant as required.
As a consultant, she specializes in helping Indie authors and publishing companies develop snappy back-end systems for marketing and project management so they have more time to focus on what they love: writing and producing books.
When she’s not working with clients or writing her next novel, she spends her time chasing the kids, exploring delicious eateries in downtown Boise, and dancing with her talented husband.
She’s a sun-worshipper, tea-devourer, and word-slaying ninja.
