Mr. Mortality and the Heart Collector (Part 1)

(Please read the description.) ... Mr. MacBranain; like any strong, healthy man of 45 in the 1890s, died soon after his arrival in America, leaving behind a very pious widow and ten very pious children. The eldest of these children, a boy named Michael, was a kindhearted young man, and the sole male provider left to his family. This was a problem for many reasons. One of them being that he’d heard his new home in New York City was a place of darkness, and sin, and depravity, and Michael knew hungry devils surely lurked in its shadows—as any reasonable person would. Michael was also very superstitious. But he had made a vow to

My Bio

Hi! I'm Donna Darling. I'm a freelance writer, aspiring author, and recreational artist!

I write mostly paranormal and fantasy fiction with occasional trips into mystery or sci-fi. I love history, folklore, and creepy/mysterious/fantastical stuff; perhaps a bit too much for my own good~

My current project (in development) is "Mortality"; the episodic adventures of a young man who finds himself employed as the Grim Reaper's assistant. It'll be a dark, yet also light-hearted gaslamp fantasy with quite a bit of friendship and sweetness!

You can read a test version of the first chapter here: fav.me/dbs8k08

I believe stories have the power to change the world! But my hope is that one of my stories can change a life. Whether I succeed or not is in God's hands.
