Dani Collins

Biography

With her first title with Mills & Boon, No Longer Forbidden?, a Book of the Month pick, Dani Collins is a promising new author.

In love with stories about love, her journey to publication took many side streets. Thus she offers a variety in her stories from intensely emotional and passionate, to epic fantasy, to romantic comedy. One thing you will always find: an alpha male clashing with a spirited heroine.

Showing a bit of spirit of her own, Dani chose to self-publish Hustled To The Altar, "Because I can." Always a contest darling, readers may remember Hustled To The Altar from RWA's Golden Heart (TM) Contest and the American Title Competition sponsored by Romantic Times.

A working wife and mom, Dani writes on the weekends in an attic bedroom overlooking her tragic vegetable garden. In the summer, she is seconds away from a pristine mountain lake. In the winter she is too often on the end of a snow shovel. Like many, she wishes she could teleport to exotic locations rather than sit on airplanes, although that is one of her favourite places to read.

After early adventures traveling to Europe and Australia, she settled down with her high school sweetheart and produced two children (one of each.) As the kids near the end of their school years, Dani is looking forward to more travel--most likely to Australia where she now has family, although Spain beckons as does Ireland.

Dani would love to hear from you. Please contact her through her website at www.danicollins.com or email her at dani@danicollins.com. You can also follow her on Twitter @DaniCollinsBook or find her on Facebook as DaniCollinsAuthor.

Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Writing. I woke up early to write when I had a day job and now that it is my day job, I HAVE to get up and go to work.
But I can stay in my PJs so that's okay.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I spent so many years using all my spare time to write, before I was published, I now struggle to walk away from the computer and do other things. Usually only things I have to do, like chores or errands or working out, pull me away from writing. I used to golf and garden. I wouldn't mind taking up both again. All part of my 2015 plan to find a better work-life balance.
