Donna Faulkner Barron is the oldest daughter of Roy Faulkner, Chief Carver of the Confederate Memorial Carving at Stone Mountain Park. Donna was born to Roy and Juanita in Crawford Long Hospital in Atlanta and was raised in Covington, Georgia with her three other siblings, Richard, the oldest and the only son along with sisters Judy and Patti. Donna is married to Ronald Peter Barron and they have two children, Jessica 29 and Peter 24.
Donna completed her elementary and high school years in Newton County and furthered her education by attending Dekalb Area Tech in Clarkston, Ga where she completed her degree in Secretarial Science. Donna was now ready for the work force. She interviewed and was hired as a Stenographer for the Georgia State Labor Department where she worked for 5 years. Realizing that this career was ending, she moved back home and began her new adventure in life...being her dad's assistant. She helped compile records using her secretarial skills and in the mid 80's she found herself as the secretary to her dad who was the Curator of the Stone Mountain Carving Museum which was opened for a couple years on Memorial Drive. After the museum closed she and her dad parted their ways and she began her only family as her parents moved to McDonough, Ga.
Later on ..30 years later.. using those same secretarial skills she would have never envisioned herself as the co-author of the book, "The Man Who Carved Stone Mountain", that her and her dad along with Kay Stowe Jones wrote. What an honor and priviledge to work side by side with her dad to tell his story and share his legacy forever. I am sure Roy is up in heaven looking down and thinking "I am so glad I invested the money in Donna's education so that one day I could be proud of her accomplishments"..Job Well Done..

I just got back to Florida from the book signing in Tucker GA at the local library there. There were about 35 authors present including 9 members from Scribblers: Myself, Mary Renshaw, Luanne Scrogan, Mike & Leda Owens, Pat and Anthony Smith, Marlene Ratledge Buchanan, and David Newton (Pen Name: Samuel Wardwell). We each had the opportunity to speak about our books.
I have added the video that was taken of my presentation, as well as pictures of each of the members during their presentations.
I believe that Scribblers will be growing, as a number of the authors present were interested in the writing club. I also got to announce the new book in the next series that I am working on. "Eyewitness - The Tears of the Saints" is the first book in the Miracles of Christ series, and will be out in time for the Decatur Book Festival in August. I picked up the artwork that will be the basis for the cover from Dennis Assayac on Friday, and I am pleased with that as well.
These book signings are a necessary part of what authors need to do, and this one introduced us to the incredible diversity in the writing community, and the amazing presence of so many Christian authors. That alone made the book signing a success, and there were even some books sold.
Please do look at the pictures, and share the video to get the word out on what we are doing at Scribblers, and what I am doing as an author.

Thanks to everyone who came to the book signing.
