Donaya Haymond

Donaya Haymond, a half-Thai, half-American college student, began writing her first novel at age 13, in 2003. It took until 2008 before she managed to get a publishing deal, but by then she was well on her way, having won several accolades in high school. Her favorite authors are Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett, Bill Bryson, Rumi, and James Branch Cabell. She enjoys the sci-fi shows Doctor Who and Firefly, fences sabre with more enthusiasm than skill, and spends an inordinate amount of time lurking about TV Tropes. 

A Note From Donaya Haymond

My currently published books are all in a loosely connected series that I call Legends of Laconia, USA. They may be read with full enjoyment on their own or in any order, but for those who wish to read them chronologically, the order is: 

1. Halloween Romance

2. Bite Me

3. Waking Echoes

4. Humans and Demons and Elves
