Danie was born and raised and still resides in her hometown Detroit, Michigan surrounded by friends and family. She always intends to make Christmas cookies and homemade gifts but doesn’t always get around to them because of the crazy schedule she keeps. When she’s not writing or cooking she’s crocheting or reading – always doing something creative to stay inspired. While she’s not great at juggling, Danie always has at least two projects in the works with more waiting in various stages of planning.
And like most authors, gets ideas under usual circumstances like washing dishes or in the shower and always keeps a notebook handy.
For Danie, being an author has been her career goal since she read her first book at the age of three. She started writing at the age of seven because she wanted to see more characters that reflected her and her family. She was raised with a large extended family. Her books represent the concepts and values she was raised on – blood doesn’t make family, love does and that the only way to spell the word family is l-o-v-e. Danie was taught that words have power and decided to use her words to reflect the world as she knows it and spread some of the joy she gets from reading.
