Danielle spent her formative years in the Tampa Bay Area driving into neighborhood signs, breaking curfew, and writing bad poetry before moving to Boston to become a librarian. She now hangs her Tampa Bay Rays hat in Seattle.
Danielle is also a
rabid avid baseball fan, lazy gardener, occasional swimmer, and voracious reader. Sleeping is her superpower. Her favorite yoga pose is lying on the floor covered with a blanket. When not doing any of the above, Danielle is chasing around her tiny tornado, BB, who has inherited her bad decision-making and good storytelling genes.
Before devoting her professional life to writing and reading and libraries, Danielle worked as a secretary, writing tutor, florist assistant, Lutheran camp counselor, college radio DJ and station manager, bookseller, house cleaner, blogger, and travel writer. She is a current contributor to the official blog for the Hand to Hold Organization. Her short stories and essays can be found in Cleaver Magazine, The Dime Show Review, Creative Truth Journal , 200cc’s, Pinch Journal, The Offbeat, and Fiction Fix.
