English village. A crime fiction fan from a young age, Donna wanted
to be one of Enid Blyton's Famous Five and fight crime with the
aid of only a basket of cucumber sandwiches and a bottle of ginger

new local vicar put a stop to her sleuthing career.
now lives in Glasgow, where she has a thrilling dual career as
a mild-mannered pension consultant by day, and an unemployed superhero
by night. For relaxation she listens to Dean Martin and The Ramones,
watches screwball comedy and film noir, and enjoys salsa, cha
cha cha and merengue - despite having two left feet.
