J.D. Donnelly was born on a beach where dolphins played, grew up in an enchanted forest filled with deer, and studied Studio Art and Creative Writing at Hollins University, home to many squirrels. In her quest to draw and write about dragons and other fantastic beasts, she graduated top of her class, was inducted into Sigma Tau Delta and Phi Beta Kappa, and joined the Society of Children’s Books Writers and Illustrators. Though she works in a variety of mediums, she is happiest when up to her elbows in ink from etching and block printing. Both her etchings and her block prints have been featured in shows and conventions around the country, and have earned many awards and contest prizes. When not worming her way through piles of books or spending hours making art, writing, and dragon-hunting (to observe, not slay), she designs and sews stuffed animals, makes costumes, watches cartoons, collects fluffy things, and dotes on her cuddly rottweilers and wiggly corgi.
