Donna MorrisseyDonna Morrissey (born 1956 at The Beaches, Newfoundland) is a Canadian author.
At age 16 Morrissey left her birthplace, The Beaches, a small outport on the west coast of Newfoundland. She lived in various places of Canada before returning to St. John's where she studied at Memorial University, where she obtained a Bachelor of Social Work, and a diploma in adult education. Morrissey now lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Morrissey has written six prize-winning novels — ''Kit's Law'', the national best seller ''Downhill Chance'', and ''Sylvanus Now'' — as well as one prize-winning screenplay.
Morrissey defended Frank Parker Day's novel ''Rockbound'' in ''Canada Reads 2005''. ''Rockbound'' eventually won the competition. In the 2007 edition of ''Canada Reads'', an "all-star" competition pitting the five winning advocates from previous years against each other, Morrissey returned to champion Anosh Irani's novel ''The Song of Kahunsha''.
