BOOKS BY DONNA VANN
I've written adventure books set in another time, a teen novel, picture books and fun books about interesting places in the world. My latest is TO NATIVITY AND BEYOND, a book of plays for Christmas and other seasons for use by churches.
What kids and parents have said:
"A fabulous event - I'm still buzzing!"
"When are you going to write another one of these?'"
"I couldn't put it down."
"CORIN'S QUEST was my favorite book."
"Reading WHICH WAY YOU GONNA JUMP? helped me understand my child who is being bullied at school."
TO NATIVITY AND BEYOND -

Set in 14th-Century England, the novel plunges the reader into life in the Middle Ages. For ages 9-12.
"No wonder this book has been reprinted! As soon as I started reading, everything else was put aside till I had reached the last page." (from the GoodBookStall)
