About Us

MyMimiSays tells the stories caregivers often tell—unique stories that incorporate your child’s name. We personalize and print stories in keepsake, custom picture books for newborns to children through age eight. Our custom books make a unique reading experience for girls and boys and are suitable gifts for any occasion—birthdays, graduations, Christmas and any occasion in between.

MyMimiSays was founded in 2009 by Donna Hemans, who also writes fiction for adults. Donna is the author of River Woman, which was a finalist for the Hurston/Wright Legacy Award in 2003 and co-winner of the 2003-2004 Towson University Prize for Literature. She has won numerous writing awards and fellowships for her work. She was the 2007-2008 Black Mountain Institute (University of Nevada, Las Vegas) International Women’s Forum Fellow and twice served as the Lannan Visiting Creative Writer in Residence at Georgetown University. Donna’s short fiction has also appeared in Caribbean Writer, Crab Orchard Review, Witness, and the anthology Stories from Blue Latitudes: Caribbean Women Writers at Home and Abroad.
