Donna Campbell Smith spent her childhood just a few miles inland from North Carolina’s Outer Banks. She loved to visit with her parents on numerous fishing trips. Donna only dreamed of having a horse when she was a little girl, and wasn’t aware that wild horses roamed free on some of the coastal islands .

A professional in the horse industry as an instructor, breeder and trainer, she has relied on her thirty-plus years of experience with horses and children, and her lifetime fascination with the history of the Outer Banks to write two historical novels for young readers: Pale as the Moon, An Independent Spirit, and Bear Song. She has also written three non-fiction books, The Book of Miniature Horses (The Lyons Press, 2005) The Book of Draft Horses: The Horse That Built the World (The Lyons Press, 2007) and The Book of Mules: Selecting, Breeding, and Caring for Equine Hybrids (The Lyons Press, 2008.) In addition to her books Donna has written articles for several regional and national magazines including Grit Magazine, Back Home Magazine, Stable Management Magazine, USA Equestrian, Young Rider, The Chronicle of the Horse, Boys Life, The Gaited Horse, Western Mule, The Brayer, Our State, Carolina Country and Conquistador.

She has an AAS Degree in Equine Technology from Martin Community College, where she also took extended courses in art and composition. She is a certified riding instructor and served many years as a Master NC 4-H Horse Program Volunteer. She is a member of Franklin county Arts Council (FCAC) and serves a coordinator of their writers and photographers guilds. Smith was named 2011 Artist of the Year by FCAC.
