Donnie has worked in the fields of Engineering and Information Technology for most of his life. He also served as Fire Chief, Firefighter, and Emergency Medical Technician in his hometown for almost 15 years, which gave him lots of interesting experiences to write about.
He currently lives between small towns in rural, Northern Illinois, where he is surrounded by corn and soybean fields. He and his wife, Barbara, have a houseboat on a lake in Central Illinois, where they enjoy spending time fishing, boating and taking in the scenery.
They have two grown sons who live nearby, and are allowed to share their home with a fat male cat named Hedgie, who is almost always sleeping nearby while Donnie writes books and creates eBooks and print books for other authors and publishers. Donnie also creates books covers for others, and enjoys the creative challenge that presents.
