About the Author

                                                                                                                                                                                  Donna Cantor is the author of two novels-- Released From the Shadows and Sunnyside.  She is an Assistant Teaching Professor for the Writing Program at Rutgers University.   She grew up in Brooklyn, New York (before it was trendy)! From a very early age, Donna would enter intriguing worlds through the words on a page.  Her passport was a library card.  On rainy days, she would scribble her own stories into a binder, just to entertain herself.  That childhood interest eventually developed into an adult passion.  

Prior to teaching at Rutgers, she worked as a customer service representative for a company that was contracted to the Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES).  Donna graduated with a BA in Sociology from Brooklyn College and has an MBA in Marketing from Pace University’s Lubin School of Business.  Donna has three grown children and resides with her husband in central New Jersey where she enjoys baking bread, needlepoint, and torturing friends and family with bad puns.
