Novelist Donna Galanti
continues our series on the
Craft of Fiction
Donna Galanti describes herself as a “hybrid” writer. She writes suspense, young adult, and middle grade fiction. She has published independently as well as through an agent. For her paranormal suspense novel, A Human Element, she was named an International Thriller Writers Debut Author, and the novel’s sequel, A Hidden Element, is coming out this summer from Imajin Books. And as if all that were not enough to stir our envy, Books One and Two of her middle grade series, Joshua and the Lightning Road, will be coming out in 2015 from Month9Books. How does she do it all? Come find out.
Donna is a member of International Thriller Writers (ITW), Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, Pennwriters , and The Greater Lehigh Valley Writers Group. She is also a contributing editor to ITW’s online magazine, The Big Thrill, and blogs for Algonquin Redux. You can read more about her at www.donnagalanti.com.
Although meetings officially start at 7:00 pm, many of us show up early to have a meal and catch up with each other. You can also order food and drink (on your own tab) throughout the meeting. The program generally lasts approximately 75 minutes. However, people stay as long as they like after the official program and we sometimes close the place.
Officers of the group are currently:
• Mark A.R. Mitchell - President
• James Breslin - Vice President
• Jurgen Flood - Treasurer
• Wayne A. "Tony" Conaway - Publicity
• [OPEN] - Secretary
• Gary Zenker - PR Advertising and Meetup Administrator
