Happy July and welcome to my blog site! As many of you know, I am a firm believer in promoting my fellow authors’ books. And throughout the summer, I will invite a few guest bloggers to share their book(s). As writers, we all know that marketing and promotion, social media involvement, networking, and so much more, are important to spread the word about our work. Sometimes, we have to jump outside the box and be bold, brave, and persistent in our efforts to solicit the attention of our readers.
Donya Fenner was born in Hearne, Texas where she discovered at the tender age of eight that she had a gift and a passion for singing. She also discovered her love for writing as well. Donya’s grandmother, who was her legal guardian, encouraged her and introduced her to all kinds of music, like country, classical, gospel, rock and roll, rhythm and blues.
Donya is an author and a motivational speaker. She has two published books. Her first book, “A Creative Creature’s Testimony,” and “Second Chances,” which was re-released by Redemption Press on May 19, 2017. “Second Chances” is also being considered for adaptation into a screenplay for filming.
Donya is also a Stellar Award-winning gospel singer. Her Group LXW (League of Xtraordinary Worshippers), led by Oxygen Network’s Preachers of L.A. gospel sensation Deitrick Haddon, won their first Stellar Award for Best Contemporary Choir of the Year at the 2015 Stellar Gospel Music Awards, hosted by Taraji P. Henson at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.
Music ministry has provided unique opportunities, and Donya has shared stages and made television appearances with some of the industry’s renown artists. Some of the artists included Yolanda Adams, Tamela Mann, Shirley Caesar, Dorinda Clark-Cole, Donny Mc Clurkin, Hezekiah Walker, KiKi Sheard, Tasha Cobbs, Mary Mary, Dottie Peeples, Beyonce Knowles, Brandy Norwood, Ray J, Destiny’s Child and a host of others.
In addition, Donya is the founder of Creative Creature’s Women’s Organization in Torrance, California, and is currently the Program Medical Secretary for the National University Nurse Managed Clinic. The clinics, located in Watts, Compton, and Inglewood, CA, provide free healthcare services for under-resourced communities. On March 16, 2017, the Nurse Managed Clinic entered into a partnership with The Salvation Army – Southern California Division, and Donya was very instrumental in helping this collaboration come to fruition.
