Donna Barba Higuera grew up in a tiny desert town in central California surrounded by agricultural and oil fields. Her favorite childhood activities were calling the library’s dial-a-story repeatedly and sneaking into a restricted pioneers’ cemetery to weave her own spooky tales using the crumbling headstones for inspiration. Donna’s Middle Grade and Picture books reinvent history, folklore, and her own life experience into compelling story lines. Donna lives in Washington state with her family, three old dogs and one frog.
