me caricatureSo, you want to know who I am do you? ¬†ūüôā

I’m a mom, a grandmother, a wife, and a friend to three cats. I’ve always been a prolific reader (I remember when we would go camping when I was a kid, my dad used to get so mad because I only wanted to sit and read instead of going on hikes or boating or whatever) and I’ve wanted to be a writer for as long as I can remember.

Dani, The Blogger

I’ve always loved blogging. ¬†From my first online blog at diary-x, to blogspot, to WordPress, I’ve had a lot of blogs. I created this one to be more like a fun, personal blog – a cross between Tumblr and other social outlets, and The Bloggess (I wish I was as popular as ¬†her!)

A lot of the stuff you see here will be funny or inspirational. ¬†Sometimes you’ll see pure rambles. And other times I’ll post about my ebooks.

Dani, The Writer

For the past 8 years I have been making money from my writing. ¬†Most of it has been non-fiction writing that I get paid for by webmasters or bloggers that have their own sites and don’t want to write the content themselves or can’t write the content themselves. I have written some fiction – but nothing that I want to have under my own name.

What I’ve always wanted to write is novels. ¬†Full novels with characters that you can connect with, cry with, get excited with, and become friends with.

The best books I’ve read are books that I go back to time and time again. ¬†They have characters that feel like friends to me. ¬†When I re-read one of those books it feels like I am going home. ¬†One writer that has influenced me is Rosamunde Pilcher. She’s written quite a few books but the ones I have truly loved are The Shell Seekers and Winter Solstice. I’ve read those books so many times. ¬†I do know exactly what is going to happen – but I like that. ¬†I like picking up one of the books and opening it to a random spot and just starting to read. ¬†It’s like re-living a memory.

So, I hope that this is the kind of books that I will write for you. I hope that you will connect with Ripley and Linc, the main characters in my first books, and feel with them.  I hope that you will want more of them.  I hope that you will fall in love with their stories.

Cheers,

dani
