About Danielle Nicole Bienvenu

At 29, Danielle is a professional author and poet of 16 published novels. She wrote her debut novel, "Against All Odds: The Ruby Princess" at 14 years old and published it at 17. She became a professional model in print and on runway at 10. Danielle became a professional actress at 12; doing commercials, theatre, and acting in a pilot series with Haley Duff and Shelly Duval. She has won many international pageants. A former dance teacher, she has been dancing from an early age, winning awards for her choreography and dancing while performing internationally. Like the characters from her first novel, at 18 she received her Coat of Arms from France. Her full name is Danielle Nicole Bienvenu, Lady of Estons.

Danielle began song-writing at the age of 6 and writing stories at 10. Danielle has her Master's from Oxford Brookes University in England in International Law and International Relations (focus on human rights), two certificates from Harvard University in Justice and National Security and a certificate in Counter-Terrorism from Georgetown University. She also holds two Bachelor's degrees from Lamar University in Political Science and French with a minor in Creative Writing. A former French teacher, Danielle is fluent in French as well as English but she also dabbles in Spanish, German, American Sign Language, Hebrew, and Mandarin. After living abroad in Europe, traveling around the world, and teaching English in China, she decided to return to her native Texas.

Danielle is a seasoned missionary who likes beads and feathers. She enjoys playing guitar to her own beat, dancing in grocery store aisles, and singing whenever the urge strikes. She is often found with pen in hand. She has two furry babies, her Golden Retrievers: Duchess Annabelle and Toby Maximus. Danielle is outspoken about being a voice for the voiceless whether it may be human or animal, and is a motivational speaker on overcoming depression and suicide. She adamantly volunteers to help victims of domestic violence and rape. A lover of history, she has dedicated countless hours to preserving historical museums in her native area. It isn’t uncommon to find her in a recording studio or performing her music in her spare time. She loves to read as much as she enjoys writing.

Danielle is also a member of Faith Writers, an online forum for Christian authors. She is best known for her mystery and psychological thrillers, romance novels, poetic symbolism, and works against social injustices. Her genres range from thrillers, mystery, romance, historical fiction, drama, young adult, paranormal, comedy, poetry, nouveau romain, Christian and novellas.

Review by: Danielle Shaver on Jan. 25, 2013 :
This short story is touching and opens your eyes to the fact society still suffers from racism. Told in an original way everyone can understand and appreciate. An eloquently written short story that makes you continue to think long after the cover has been closed. Defiantly a must read for those who think racism is not an issue or for those who understand what it's like to be judged.

Review by: Danielle Shaver on Jan. 25, 2013 :
Changing Stripes may be a short story but the impact found within these few pages is so very strong. Draws you in from the first sentence and leaves you thinking long after the last word. It is sad that racism is still going strong and I commend Danielle for writing about its effects so eloquently. Defiantly a must read.
