I write fiction and non-fiction for children and adults. Over the past 20 years I've authored more than 40 books for publishers in New Zealand, Australia and the UK. A few have been translated and distributed globally. I've had hundreds of travel and lifestyle articles published, and worked as managing editor on travel, motorhome, and renovating magazines.

BOOK a school visit/talk
I regularly visit schools, preschools, and libraries to enthuse children about reading and writing. I also run creative writing workshops at schools and libraries, and speak at public events.

"It was great meeting Donna Blaber – in fact better than great! She had an incredible impact on the students. Let’s walk back a bit with the setting – she came into a low decile school and she captured my students’ minds! They loved it – they went on and on about it. They wrote like they were Donna possessed today!" Sally Wilson, Principal, Raurimu Avenue School
