Donna Kirven, better known in the poetry world as "Celestial Dancer," was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pa., but currently lives in Northern California with her husband and two daughters. Coping with life through love, laughter, music and her passion for writing she has found a way to combine the beautiful arts of poetry and music and invites the world to share the joyous blend. She has written poetry since age 10, and had her first poem published in her high school newspaper. Donna attended Temple University, and JFK University and currently holds a graduate degree in Career Development Counseling.
Her first book, When a Band-Aid Isn't Enough, and other poetic perspectives was released in February 2005, and offers an eclectic compilation of traditional and non-traditional poetry that provokes soul deep images of any given moment in time, ones that we all, or someone close to us have experienced but have often been unwilling or unable to express. Just as in her first book, she remains true to her mission of sculpting life with words and painting feelings that touch and unite souls. She continues to capture unspoken moments of love, laughter, mood and passion in poetic verse.
