During a prompted writing session of Seven Bridge Writers’ Collaborative in 2017, Robert E. Donahue developed a routine piece. The plotline of what seemed at first mere scribblings flowed well, and the protagonist seemed identifiable and engaging. Fellow writers expressed confidence, and encouraged, he sent the piece to several journals, after editing, and it was published by Dual Coast Magazine. “Whether” can be read in Issue #5.


Robert writes short stories and novels. After forty years in international business, he quit to focus full time on writing. He received an MFA in Fiction Writing from the University of New Hampshire in 2009 and is currently at work on a novel. His stories have also appeared in The Scarlet Leaf Review and Down In The Dirt Magazine. Robert lives with his spouse and their extended family in Bolton, MA.
