Wish me luck!


While I’ve been drafting my second historical novel, a trio of trusted readers have been critiquing the final draft of an earlier-written memoir inspired by my paternal aunt, Pasqualina (Lee) Donnarumma–She’s between her two Becce cousins in the photo above. Last week, my mentors told me the manuscript was ready to shop around. So off it has gone!

If you’d like to have a peek at a short excerpt of WIFE, MOTHER, VIRGIN, WHORE? NO, ZIA! go to http://www.marydonnarummasharnick.com and Memoir.

I’d love your feedback. And I’ll be sure to let you know whatever transpires.
