She was 28 years old when she decided to write fiction. Kauffman was already pregnant with her first son, and she needed a distraction. Writing was the answer. However, once her son was born, she abandoned the activity, only reviving it later when she fell pregnant with her second son.
Once again, Kauffman needed a distraction, and writing was the easiest solution. But again, she abandoned the hobby when her second son was finally born.
However, it did not take her long to realize that she wanted to stay home and raise her children, and a publishing career would enable her to do just that. So, she decided to give writing a serious go.
As a child, Kauffman was an enthusiastic reader. She experimented with various genres. But romance had a special place in her heart because she loved relationships. She believed that few other human experiences could rival the act of falling in love.
She derived great joy from reading romance. It was only natural that she would choose to write romance. The author’s journey to publishing success was not particularly grueling.
Once she decided to write novels for a living, Kauffman joined a small but prolific writers’ group that taught her everything she needed to know about publishing. She met writers, editors, librarians, and everyone in between.
By the time she completed her first book, she had a solid network of connections at her disposal. They helped her sell her first book. They also had a hand in landing the author a three-book contract. By that point, Kauffman had already decided to make publishing her primary focus.
She never regretted the decision. Few other activities gave the author as much pleasure as writing. She would lose herself in the stories she was telling for hours at a time. Kauffman made it a point to write the kinds of stories she wanted to read. She admitted in some interviews that the writing process would occasionally frustrate her. But she persevered because she loved what she was doing. Her real-life experiences informed the stories she told. Though, she did not use specific events from her life in her books. Besides romance, she dabbled in the mystery and suspense genres.

Best Donna Kauffman Books
Upon her death, Kauffman’s editor praised the author for writing uplifting and insightful stories. Kauffman’s best books include:
Sugar Rush: Leilani Trusdale left New York for Georgia. She wanted to start over, which is why she opened a bakery on Sugarberry Island. She did not expect Baxter Dunne to follow her.
Dunne, her former boss, wanted to use Lani’s bakery to film his cooking show. He had no idea that Lani could barely maintain her composure in his presence. Dunne was everything Lani wanted.
However, despite the rumors, nothing had ever happened between the two. Now that Dunne has invaded Lani’s sleepy town, the baker doesn’t know how to respond. She doesn’t realize that Dunne is going out of his way to woo her.
Sea Glass Sunrise: Hannah McCrae was far from happy. The D.C. lawyer was on her way home to attend her brother’s wedding. But she had a lot on her plate. With a professional humiliation on her mind, she had no interest in romance.
Calder Blue was more than happy to abide by Hannah’s wishes. Calder wasn’t blind. He was attracted to Hannah, and she liked him as well. But his plate was just as full.
He wanted to focus his efforts on building the new yacht club. The contractor had no room in his life for a woman. But Calder and Hannah couldn’t steer clear of one another. Destiny kept conspiring to push them into each other’s arms.
