Due to a fusion of interrelated physical challenges, the author tries to spend about ten hours a week on his writings, although even that paucity of time isn't always possible. He devotes much of his time mentally re-developing plots, characters and dialogue. Donald has authored a number of prize-winning pieces of short fiction. Trinkets in Love's Lost and Found is his first published novel. The Innocent, his second book, is an engaging drama about the terrible plight of children abducted for the brutal world of the sex slavery industry. The author divides his time between Ajax, a suburb of Toronto on the north shore of Lake Ontario, and Estero, a small village in southwest Florida between Fort Myers and Naples. His daughter, Danielle Crowe, a design and marketing specialist, conceived and crafted the cover for Trinkets in Love's Lost and Fond.
