Donna F. Brown

Donna Fields Brown is a recently published author of her first book, an autobiography, "Finding Medusa: The Making of an Unlikely Rock Star." She hails from Chicago and lived in Broomfield, Colo. for 30 plus years, about as many years as she resided in Colorado. Donna now lives in Pearce, Ariz., a small, rural community with her husband, Gary, and faithful canine companion, a very hairy and feisty Sheltie named Toby.

In addition to her new book, Fields Brown was one of 40 authors selected out of over 1000 applicants to have her article about yoga published in "Yoga in America," a book that was released in February 2009.

When she is not writing or reading, Fields Brown loves to run and hike, and teach yoga in her community. She also loves to be outdoors, weather permitting.
