Donna Douglas

Donna Douglas is the author of The Nightingale Girls, the first in a series of stories set in an East End Hospital in the 1930s. She began writing stories on top of the coal shed in a south London back yard when she was a child, but has since graduated to a spare room at her home in York, where she lives with her husband and a cat called Trevor. She has a grown-up daughter. When she's not working, Donna enjoys walking, reading and watching trashy daytime TV.
