I’m glad you’re here. My name is Donny Bailey Seagraves and I’m a published children’s book author living in Athens, Georgia, about 65 miles from Atlanta.
I am an Athens native and for many years lived in the nearby small town of Winterville. My debut children’s middle grade novel, Gone From These Woods, which is set in the woods of North Georgia, was published by Penguin Random House. Find out more about this coming-of-age novel here.
If you’re interested in learning how I got published by Random House without an agent and after many years of rejection, read my article in The Writer magazine.
