Donna Groves


After a long career in Infrastructure Engagement and Communications, I finally fulfilled my lifelong goal of  writing that book kast year. Shine –  a non-fiction coming of age/wellbeing book was published in September 2023. My second book – A Difficult Woman Person is currently in the final editing phase and due for publication later this year. I have just commenced writing my third book – Ordinary Woman doing the Extraordinary. It is inspired by the guests I interview on my podcast – Shine and I expect it to be released in late 2025.

I am also doing freelance writing for wellbeing publications/newspapers and writing my blog. I am passionate about gender equality, women in sport and holistic health. I am a yoga loving vegetarian with a penchant for heavy metal. I don’t plan on dying wondering!
