TLBTV: Lorana Writes the World – With Guest Author – Donna Carbone

Welcome back to – Lorana Writes the World – With this weeks special Guest, Author – Donna Carbone


By TLBTV Show Host: Lorana Hoopes

Donna Carbone may look like your typical grandmother from Florida, but she is anything but. This woman has been a journalist, a teacher, an author, and a magazine columnist. She has even met Burt Reynolds (though she is pretty humble about that).

Having suffered from domestic abuse and watched her daughter suffer from a rape, she has a real passion for helping women avoid those situations. That’s why those issues became the topics of her fictional Crime Series books. Her daughter’s rape is fictionalized as one of the crimes in Personal Hell, but Donna tells the real story in the back so people can see the difference. Her hope is that she can help women move from victims to survivors if they are going through similar issues or to help them avoid becoming victims at all.

Donna also has a passion for Veterans and after being introduced to a man who gave so much for his country and then suffered from PTSD, she wrote a play about his life. It has been performed in Dallas and several other areas.

But Donna has a fun side as well. She also writes Children’s books. Her grandson has inspired her first two books and her goal is to have a great relationship with her grandchildren even if it bankrupts her.

Donna also loves to give back. She knows what it is like to be a struggling writer, so she works with writers in the area to help build their skills and also promote them.
