Donna Fletcher Crow (born 1941) is mystery writer known for historical Christian fiction.[1][2][3][4] She lives in Boise, Idaho, but sets much of her work in England.[2][4]


Crow was born in Nampa, Idaho in 1941.[5] She was an only child and grew up learning to ride horses.[3] Crow participated in competitive riding, winning the titles of Snake River Stampede Rodeo Queen in 1959 and Miss Rodeo Idaho in 1960,[6] and she was a runner up in the Miss Rodeo America 1960 competition.[3] Crow graduated from Northwest Nazarene College with a bachelor's in English literature in 1964 and afterwards, she taught English and drama in high school.[5]

Crow founded an alternative Wesleyan-Anglican church called Epworth Chapel on the Green.[3]


Crow promoted her nonfiction book, Recipes for the Protein Diet in 1972.[7] A reviewer for the Idaho Free Press felt that there was good variety among the recipes and the pictures were realistic and "mouth-watering."[8]

Crow's novel, Glastonbury: The Novel of Christian England, won the best historical novel of 1992 from the National Federation of Press Women.[5] Her work has been compared to Veronica Black and Carol Anne O'Marie by Library Journal.[9]
