Author CaricatureDana E. Donovan grew up in New England where folklore and superstitions can mold a town's history as much as its people. As a boy, he loved reading Sherlock Holmes mysteries and tales of adventure by Mark Twain. Later, he became a big Stephen King fan, and when he started writing his own mysteries, influences from all his literary heroes began echoing in his writings. In his blended style, Dana exploits small town phenomena, perpetuating the enigma of its people and the belief in all that dies is not dead.

The Marcella Witch's series revolves around five main characters whose lives thoroughly interconnect and evolve from book to book. There's witchcraft with paranormal suspense, and of course a mystery, usually a crime mystery. In that respect, I make sure that each book is a capable stand-alone, and that the reader gets a satisfactory resolve to the mystery bybook's end. Yet, it's the continuing back-story that makes the series what it is; the reader's
investment in the characters keeps them coming back for more. To date, there are 9 books in the series with number 10 on the way.
