Bea Donaldson grew up in rural Iowa, spending most of her time roaming her family’s century farm and reading in the small-town library. Storytelling has always been one of her favorite activities. After graduating from Iowa State University with a Bachelor’s in English, she began writing Pabulum. In order to complete the book, she took an introductory course from the Institute of Children’s Literature and was later invited to take their advanced writing course.
Amidst writing this book, she was diagnosed with melanoma and began a healing adventure, where she became a Natural Therapeutics Specialist. She has always taken an interest in mythology and ancient history, as well as quantum physics and botany. These influences are greatly reflected in her writing. She currently lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico with her son Kalyx.
