As a result, her curiosity only grew stronger as she begun to explore the limitless characters that filled this world. Since she was curious about the many different people she could become, one can only imagine how difficult it is to find one specific area in which sincerely resonated with her. However, it wasn't until she begun experimenting with artistic materials that she developed a growing interest in the expressiveness that art provides. Similar to how New York City is filled with many different mixtures of personality and characters, art is filled with the mixture of expressions and emotions. She felt like art can express the lifelong curiosities that she continues to experience.She continued the path of art until today in which she continues to study Digital Arts & Design and Art Studio in College. She is not only an artist, but a dancer as well. Her passion for dancing derived from her exploration for an elective course during middle school in which she learned modern dancing. As the years passed, she explored many different flavors of dance while partaking in multiple types of dances such as Hip-Hop, Pop, K pop, etc. Her first performance was at Stony Brook University for one of their events.However, she shortly began to develop interest in other types of art in which further increased her ability to fully express herself: modeling and acting. Although she tried to pursue the goal of modeling/acting and gain experience in this particular type of art, her motivation quickly diminished after she had been scammed by an agency which pretended to help her. As a result, she continued to go to school and explore the many more possibilities that this world provided her. Three years later, she had realized that there were nothing else that she enjoyed as much as modeling & acting and thus, she tried once more. Throughout those years of continued exploration, she had gained the determination, perseverance, and resilience needed in order to pursue this type of artistic occupation. Up until today and for the rest of her future, she will continue to explore the lifelong process of self-expression and continue to grow in order to become a better character.

Awards and nominations:

Donnelly won the Carnegie Medal and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for A Northern Light. Both A Northern Light and Revolution won other awards or were runners-up (often called Honor Books in the U.S.) and both were named to several annual book lists:

A Northern Light (2003)

Revolution (2010)



Her second novel, A Northern Light, is Donnelly's biggest success to date. It is based on the infamous murder of Grace Brown by Chester Gillette in the Adirondack Mountains in 1906 - which had been the basis for Theodore Dreiser's epic An American Tragedy and its adaptation, the 1951 film A Place in the Sun.


Donnelly returned to New York at age 25, moving to Brooklyn. Her first book was published by Atheneum in 2002: Humble Pie, a picture book with the veteran Illustrator Stephen Gammell. That year she also published her first novel, the product of ten years work. The Tea Rose (Thomas Dunne, 2002) is the first book of a trilogy set in the East End of London late in the 19th century, with ties to the story of Jack the Ripper. The second book, The Winter Rose, continues the tale, following the Finnegan family and related characters from London to Africa to the coast of Northern California. The third novel in the series, The Wild Rose, which explores Willa and Seamie's story, follows the characters from London on the verge of World War I to Arabia in 1918.


A Northern Light was published as A Gathering Light in the U.K. There, it won the 2003 Carnegie Medal, recognizing the year's outstanding children's book. For the 70th anniversary of the Medal a few years later, it was named one of the top ten winning works, selected by a panel to compose the ballot for a public election of the all-time favorite. Similarly, it was named one of Time Magazine's 100 Best Young Adult Books of All Time in 2015.


In 2004, A Northern Light won the Carnegie Medal for children's and young-adult books published in Britain - where it was entitled A Gathering Light and may have been her first work published in the U.K. In the U.S., it won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for young-adult literature and was a runner-up for the Printz Award from the American Library Association (ALA), recognizing the year's best book for young adults. In 2015, Time Magazine named A Northern Light one of the best YA books of all time.


Her second young-adult novel, Revolution, is a tale of two teenage girls - one in present-day Brooklyn, and one in Paris during the French Revolution - whose stories interweave as they struggle to make sense of the tragedies they encounter. The book was published in October, 2010 by Delacorte Press, an imprint of Random House, with a first run of 250,000 copies. The book was nominated for a Carnegie Medal, and landed on a number of "best-of" lists, including Kirkus Reviews, School Library Journal,,, ALA-YALSA, among others. The audiobook edition from Listening Library, read by Emily Janice Card and Emma Bering, was a runner-up for the ALA's annual Odyssey Award. Donnelly was "captivated and amazed" by the rendition of what she calls "the hardest book I've written".


In 2011, Donnelly, unhappy with the lack of a books category on Fox-TV's Teen Choice Awards, started Just Add Books on Facebook, in which she appealed to readers to write to Rupert Murdoch and request that a books category be added to the show. In 2012, the Teen Choice Awards added a books category. Fox has never acknowledged Donnelly or Just Add Books.


As of July 2012, the U.S. Library of Congress catalogs six books by Donnelly, one 32-page picture book and five novels that surpass 2500 pages in sum.


From 2014-2016, Disney published Donnelly's four-book Waterfire Saga (Deep Blue, Rogue Wave, Dark Tide and Sea Spell), which have won numerous awards including the Nature Generation's 2015 Green Earth Book Award. The song "Open Your Eyes", released by Hollywood Records and sung by Bea Miller, was drawn from the chant sung by the river witches in Deep Blue.


In September 2017, Donnelly announced a major new project with Scholastic Publishing called Stepsister, to be published in 2019. The story begins where the classic tale of Cinderella leaves off and follows her wicked stepsister Isabelle as "personifications of fate and chance battle for control of her life, hinting that there may be hope after all for a girl labeled ugly since her first appearances in literature". Film rights for Stepsister are being handled by william Morris Endeavor and a deal is said to be in the works.


Donnelly returns to historical fiction with Fatal Throne, a book about Henry VIII and his six wives to be published by Random House/Schwartz & Wade in May 2018. For this project, Donnelly joins six other authors (Candace Fleming, M.T. Anderson, Stephanie Hemphill, Deborah Hopkinson, Linda Sue Park, and Lisa Ann Sandell), each of whom will write the part of Henry or one of his wives. Donnelly is writing Anne of Cleves, Henry's fourth wife.
