Welcome to my website! My name is Donny Bailey Seagraves and I'm a writer, published children's book author, and online books and collectibles seller living in Winterville, Georgia.
I love to do SKYPE visits and to speak at libraries, writers' conferences and other events. If you're a teacher or media specialist and you're in charge of finding a speaker, be sure to check out my school visits page.
I also like to share information about writing. Aspiring writers, be sure to take a look at my tips and other information for writers.
Before my debut novel, Gone From These Woods, was published, I had already had many articles, columns, book reviews and other writing published in magazines, including The Writer, Mature Living, and Athens Magazine, and in newspapers, including the Chicago Tribune, Athens Newspapers, and The Athens Observer. Go here to read my article in The Writer magazine about how I got published by Random House. If you'd like to learn more about me, read this recent author's profile by Jessica Colquitt from The Oglethorpe Echo.
Most writers have day jobs. Mine
is selling rare, used and out-of-print books, many by Georgia authors,
and cool collectibles in my online store, Junebug Books and
Collectibles, and on eBay and Amazon. I founded my online book selling
business (which takes its name from a childhood nickname) in 1998. Read
