About Me

I’m Donna Marilyn (DM), a Toronto-born Canadian but now living in Delft, the Netherlands.

By way of my background in journalism, literature, media studies, education, and translation, I've always had a deep love of words. Originally, I wrote short stories and poetry, but a few years ago I began to write lyrics because - though not a musician - I began hearing the tunes in my head. I've followed where they led me, and it's been a remarkable journey, both lyrically and musically.

I write comfortably across a wide range of genres.
