Writing Her Own Story: Novelist Pema Donyo '17

You can do anything you want at 17 or 18, whether it's publishing a book or going for any dream of yours. That's what Pema Donyo '17 says, and believe us, she lives her own advice. She secretly edited her first published novel, The Innocent Assassins, between classes her freshman year. Her second, One Last Letter, a historical romance, was published Aug. 18. And get this: even though she's already working on her third book, she still doesn't know if writing will be her "career." Watch our Q&A with this gifted, young CMCer.
