In 2003, she moved from Florida to Massachusetts and later to Tennessee, before returning to settle once more on the beautiful Emerald Coast with her two daughters. During her time in Tennessee, Ms. Rush attended Chattanooga State College, where she studied art and literature. These two subjects have been a constant passion throughout her life, from elementary school to college.
Her biggest literary influences are Lewis Carroll, C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Neil Gaiman, Stephen King, Susan Hill and Marion Zimmer Bradley. Her greatest artistic influences include Tim Burton, Vincent van Gogh and Lori Earley.
Ms. Rush enjoys oil painting and assemblage art, though her main career focus is on writing and ink illustration. Her published works include four educational coloring books–The Creatures of Greek Mythology, The Creatures of Classic Horror, Famous Painters in Art History, and her own version of Alice in Wonderland.
The author has another project in the works, along with her many coloring books—an anthology of supernatural horror stories that will debut later this year. The collection includes her stories “Hotel California,” “Shadow Man,” and “Hale House.” For more information about these titles and the author, visit DavinaRush.com. You can also follow her on Facebook and Twitter.
Davina Rush founded the group FWB Writers, bringing together over 20 aspiring authors like herself in the Fort Walton Beach area. She greatly enjoys supporting her fellow writers and created the group in hopes of building a creative community for authors like herself and others. You can join at Facebook.com/groups/FWBwriters.
All members live in or near Fort Walton Beach and interact online, as well as in person at meetings. The group is open to writers of all genres and age groups. Ms. Rush looks forward to developing the group further to include local writing retreats, workshops and more.
