Donna is retired from 32 years with the Denton Record-Chronicle, covering fires, floods, crashes, killings, court, general mayhem and anything involving bloodshed except the city council meetings.
Her popular blog, Moments of Lucidity, features humor and topics that inspire an emotion in her readers.
Donna has five published books that include four real crime stories and a humor book.
Her fourth book, The Vanished Wife, is new as an e-book on Amazon.com. It is the story of the disappearance and presumed murder of Kindergarten teacher Kathy Stobaugh, who was never seen or heard from after she left her home in Sanger Texas for the farm of her estranged husband, Charles Stobaugh. Charles was convicted of her murder but released a free man after the Second Court of Criminal Appeals reversed the decision of a jury and declared that the jurors did not have enough evidence to convict him. This is the true story of that case. Accompanied by numerous photographs.
Donna’s current book, Let's Kill Mom, is the story of Susan Bailey, who was murdered by her own children and her daughter’s boyfriend. What led to such a horrible crime? This book tells all and includes jailhouse interviews with all three killers and numerous photographs.
