WHO ARE MARK AND CHRISSY DONNELLY?

From Chicken Soup for the Couple's Soul

Who Are Mark and Chrissy Donnelly?

A husband and wife who exemplify the kind of loving couple these Chicken Soup stories portray, Mark and Chrissy Donnelly began their marriage with a decision to spend as much time together as possible—both in work and in spare time. Mark recounts how, during their honeymoon in Hawaii, they planned dozens of ways to leave their separate jobs and begin to work together on meaningful projects. Compiling a book of stories about loving couples was just one of the ideas.

Of the Couple’s Soul project, Mark and Chrissy say they were drawn even closer together through the experience of meeting other loving couples and reading their stories, even the hundreds that were not chosen for the final book. As a result, the Donnellys now strive to minimize their time apart and continue learning new ways to practice love and commitment in their daily lives.

Active contributors to the success of the Chicken Soup series, Mark and Chrissy are currently at work on four other Chicken Soup titles: Chicken Soup for the Golfer’s Soul, Chicken Soup for the Father’s Soul, Chicken Soup for the Family Soul and Chicken Soup for the Friend’s Soul. Mark also serves as president of The Donnelly Marketing Group, expanding the Chicken Soup message to people around the world through special projects. Mark is former vice president of marketing for his family’s successful building materials business. Chrissy was formerly a CPA with Price Waterhouse.

The couple make their home in Paradise Valley, Arizona. Mark and Chrissy can be reached at:
