About Me


Welcome to R.V. Doon’s website and blog!

Save my face mal

R.V. used to have a really nice C.V. detailing her advanced nursing education and six certifications. She’s moved from bedside nurse, to teacher, to administrator, and ended her career as a clinical research nurse. Retirement can mean a new direction or you can enjoy a life without schedules and conflicts.

R.V. chose to embrace a second career and followed her life-long dream as a writer. Now she’s a self-published author on Amazon and Smashwords. Nurses tend to pop up in her fiction and she has no idea why.

Her blog offers easy tips if you wish to jump start your own second writing career. It’s not easy to embark on a new passion, especially if you’ve had a successful past career. R.V. offers support to people trying to release the stories locked up in their imagination. She hopes readers will hang out on her blog as well. According to her, if you won every summer reading contest in elementary school, this blog is for you.

She lives in historic Mobile, Alabama on the beautiful Gulf Coast with her husband. R.V. loves seafood, deep sea fishing, and she’s recently taken up sailing. If she’s not home writing, she’s out stirring up trouble!


Short Bio: R.V. Doon is a bookie! Seriously, she’s an avid reader who also loves to write. After many years of hospital nursing, she followed her life-long dream to write full time fiction. She writes across genres from cozy mystery to dark fantasy. R.V. currently lives in Mobile, Alabama, a haunted and historical city, with her husband and two dogs who take the scary out of her world. She would love to hear from you at her blog, or find her on TwitterFacebook, and Google +.
