Minneapolis, MN - United States website twitter

Writer, poet, storyteller, actor, nerd. Donn enjoys books, movies, television, theatre, pop culture, psychology, and meditation and enjoys writing about them. He almost became a Buddhist monk (seriously), so that should tell you a lot about him. He lives with--and adores--his two cats, though he still insists he's a dog person. Donn's writing appears in various and sundry places, including B&N Reads.
