Picture of Moira


Welcome! I’m Moira Rose Donohue, children's author, playwright, poet and self-proclaimed Punctuation Queen. I hope you will spend some time visiting me here. Be sure to try out my fun games under "For Fun."

I have written books about the secret personalities of punctuation marks; biographies of men and women who influenced the civil rights movement in Virginia, including Linwood Holton and Oliver Hill; and a series of books for third graders about explorers, including that rascal Christopher Newport! Most of my work is SOL- or curriculum-based, so I love to do author visits to schools! Please check my School/Library School Visits page for up-to-date information about my programs, fees and availability.

I have more books coming out soon, so be sure to visit the My Books page as well!
