About Donna

 

Donna M. Trickett is a teacher, presenter, researcher, and author of three books, Inside Mom’s Mind, Treasures from the Wreckage, and Caregiving 101.

Thirty years after the death of their five-year-old daughter, Kimberly, and Donna’s two-month stay in the hospital, Donna chose to write Treasures from the Wreckage.  This gripping, compassionate story of the hurt, confusion and hope slowly evolving from the wreckage will inspire you.  There is also a summary chapter of the 11 treasures that she discovered and a biblically-based study guide included.

In a compassionate account of her mother’s eight year journey through Alzheimer’s, Donna gives an honest account of the ups and downs of the disease and the inspiring moments that she and her family shared together with her mother in her true story, Inside Mom's Mind.

Donna and her husband Nelson are presently working together out of Columbus, Ohio to help other caregivers and the bereaved through their books, including the latest Caregiving 101 and workshops.

All 3 books come in paperback, hardcover, and eBook format

...and are available on Xlibris, Amazon,
