After many years of writing poetry and short stories, while she was in law school Danielle finally decided to try writing novels. She wrote her first book, Safe & Sound, while in law school and published it in December 2012. Since then, Danielle has published three more novels and is working on a fifth.
Outside of writing, Danielle is also a lawyer.
One quirky thing to note: Danielle generally doesn't read the same kinds of books as she writes. Thrillers give her nightmares...unless she's the one who wrote it. Probably because she already knows all of the scary parts!

I love writing. There isn't a back story of why I do so or what inspired me- I just fell in love with it!
I love to write in a 'twist in the tale' way. Whatever happens to my characters has to be something that even I cannot guess. Basically, it's the unpredictable that draws me into writing a story. If it's obvious and so is the climax, then I lose interest in it and that's something I would never present to my readers.
My characters are ordinary but something extraordinary happens to them. That's the way I always write!
