Biography

Though she received her degree in healthcare management, Daria kept her writing as a hobby. She meant it to be private and her own way of expressing herself. It never crossed her mind to publish until she was in college. She took a chance and published. It worked!

Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
Like all dreams, it originates with a thought. I used to write as inspiration came, but now I try to stick to an outline. From there I write the book, but I also keep in mind the mechanics of a solid story from plot, character development, etc. I'm not an expert, but I've definitely grown in the last few years. By the time I finish the book, I'm stunned. It's literally a dream manifested.
How do you approach cover design?
For My What if Christmas Wish, I worked with a talented designer. Look for her shout out in my book! She literally takes my ideas and brings them to life. With me releasing this story as a second edition, I wanted to show my main character's face. I love the snow in the background, and her facial expression ties into the title. While I don't always have to have my characters shown on the cover, I wanted to capture my audience even more.
