Donna Steele

Donna writes science fiction, paranormal and small town romances about women coming into their strength and having the courage to find and accept love.

Now that she has retired from going into an office every day, she created an office at home and writes full time. Talk about living the dream!

She was the girl at the party who was yearning for the quiet corner and a book to read (go Rory Gilmore!), and has been writing in her head since she learned to read. Getting those stories down on paper (or in her laptop) has been more fun than she ever imagined it could be.

The possibilities of science fiction have always drawn her and she's read them all, there just needed to be a little more romance in them. She finally got up the courage to write them herself and is delighted to be able to share these stories with you.

She is a member of Romance Writers of America, the Fantasy, Futuristic & Paranormal Chapter of RWA and the Heart of Carolina Romance Writers. She can be reached at,, or

There is no time travel. Dr. Dustin Williams is a physicist and worked with NASA and other companies. If time travel worked, he would know.

Dr. Deanna Stevens is a trauma specialist who gave no credence to science fiction such as time travel or flux capacitors.

But when they are drawn to one another by an unknown force and have to face the reality that they're in this alone, they have to rethink their strongly held beliefs, and rely on each other in ways neither could imagine.

    Frank McNair, author of Life on the Line, will be signing his book and offering a mini workshop. His book is a gripping story about two late-middle school boys who struggle to understand themselves and the world around them. 

    His book received honor as being the "Best Book in the Young Adult category for the Spring of 2017 Pinnacle Book Achievement Awards."

    Here what others say about the book!

    “It took me back to my days as a player,” said Shaw Smith, a charter member of UNC-Chapel Hill’s Club Football program. “I could taste the dirt in my mouth, feel the sting of sweat in my eyes, rejoice in the beauty and violence of the game."

    “Frank did a grand job with his realistic portrayal of two young men coming of age…. I wish Frank had written the book 10 years earlier when my son and his friends were this age.”

    “Outstanding! Don't let your sons (or daughters) miss this gripping story of boys growing up in the world of football.”
