Welcome to my website! My name is Donny Bailey Seagraves and I'm a freelance writer and published children's book author living in Cleveland, Tennessee.

On this website, you'll find information about my debut children's middle grade novel, Gone From These Woods, published by Random House. You can read an excerpt from the beginning here. Discussion questions are here.


I love to do SKYPE visits and to speak at libraries, writers' conferences and other events. If you're a teacher or media specialist and you're in charge of finding a speaker, be sure to check out my school visits page.

I also like to share information about writing. Aspiring writers, be sure to take a look at my tips and other information for writers. Go here to read my article in The Writer magazine about how I got published by Random House. If you'd like to learn more about me, read this recent author's profile by Jessica Colquitt from The Oglethorpe Echo.
