Today’s featured Beau Monde author is Donna Hatch!
Donna Hatch, author of the best-selling “Rogue Hearts Series,” has won writing awards such as The Golden Quill and the International Digital Award, and has also been nominated twice for the Whitney Award. A hopeless romantic and adventurer at heart, she discovered her writing passion at the tender age of 8 and has been listening to those voices ever since. She is a sought-after workshop presenter, and juggles freelance editing, multiple volunteer positions, and most of all, her six children. A native of Arizona who recently transplanted to the Pacific Northwest, she and her husband of over twenty years are living proof that there really is a happily ever after.
Donna loves many things about historical fiction, but she supposes it comes right down to the people who lived in that time. This may be a skewed and romanticized vision, but she sees the people who lived long ago as being more honorable than we are today. In Regency England, duty and honor were everything. If a man said he’d do something, especially if he gave his word, he meant it, and others could count him to follow through, even if it came a great personal cost.
Donna first joined the Beau Monde about eight years ago, at the recommendation of fellow Regency author Jennifer Ashley. She loves the Beau Monde because the authors are meticulous in their research, and so very generous with their time and talents at helping each other better understand and write about the Regency.
