Darnell was born in Martinsville, Virginia on December 19, 1955 to Juanita Burch Arnoult, a Baptist beautician originally from Draper, North Carolina, and Joseph Henry Arnoult, a Catholic architect originally from Memphis, Tennessee. Her mother wanted to be a movie star, her father a fighter pilot. She wantted to be a cowgirl almost from the day she was born, but in forty-two years the opportunity never presented itself. And then it did. Her father did accept payment once in the form of a Shetland pony named Buckshot, the orneriest pony who ever lived. No one could stay on his back. So for a time, she stopped thinking of riding and roping, and concentrated on watching cowboys in thirty-minute episodes on TV until detectives took over television.

Darnell's published novel is Sufficient Grace. Her poetry collection, What Travels with Us, features the people and times of Fieldale, Virginia, a planned community in the Virginia foothills founded by Marshall Fields in the early 1900's.
