Author’s Bio (Donna Barrow-Green)

I write fiction, memoir, and plays. My novel, Exuberance Is Beauty is a Featured Story on wattpad.com. Exuberance Is Beauty is a work of literary and historical fiction. The story is set in Portland, Oregon in the 1940s. It is the first in a series of five novels chronicling one family’s indulgent and dysfunctional life; the the result of early domestic violence and trauma. In addition to the five book series, I’ve authored two other novels and a memoir. All of my writing can be found under my pen name, Rose Gluck on wattpad and Amazon. In addition to writing fiction, I am also a playwright. Two of my plays were selected for staged readings by play writing competitions in Oregon. Love Is Enough, a full-length play was The Portland Civic Theater Guild’s 2014 Fertile Ground Festival selection. A scene from my full-length play, If There Are Any Heavens was chosen by the the Hillsboro Artist Repertory Theater’s Promising Playwright’s Competition. I hold a masters degree in education and am a doctoral candidate in educational leadership. I am a qualitative researcher and teach college courses in psychology, special education, and infant mental health. My current research is with parents of  young children with autism.
