Do you love stories? I do. I especially love stories of romance and suspense. Two people defying the odds and getting their happily ever after. Thing is, I also love history. A lot. Always have. It’s fascinating, especially once you get past all those stuffy old dates. It’s populated with people of all sorts who faced insurmountable challenges and changed the world. It’s also made up of regular people like you and me who gravitate toward stories of adventure and peril. Historical romance makes these people come alive and takes us to times and places about which we can only dream. I’m thrilled to write both historical romance with suspense and contemporary romance.

I fell in love with stories from the very beginning. Now, not only do I read books, I get to tell you about them, too. Have you visited my book blog? It’s known as Danielle’s Writing Spot and is where I post book spotlights, author interviews and other bookish news. I’ve been connecting readers with their new favorite read since 2016 and gravitate toward the Christian/Inspirational market where the romance is clean and sweet and the suspense is free of gore. You’ll also find some of my bookish highlights on my social media pages. Head over to my contact page for all those links.

For the first two decades of my career, I worked in education, first as a piano teacher, then as a writing coach for middle and high school students. It is such a joy to help young writers find their love of words. And I loved the opportunity to exercise my entrepreneurial spirit during those years. My educational background includes an M.A. in Communication and Culture from Trinity International University, a B.A. in Communication from Louisiana Baptist University, and an A.A. in Biblical Studies from New Tribes Bible Institute, as well the Apprentice, Journeyman, and Craftsman Level certifications from the Christian Writers Guild. I’ve also taught college courses on intercultural communication and group dynamics at Trinity International University.

Reading and writing hasn’t been the only way I’ve experienced adventure. Over the years, I’ve had the privilege of doing short-term philanthropy work in various countries, like Bolivia, Italy, England, and Uganda, as well as volunteer work with middle schoolers, which had me experiencing activities way outside my comfort zone. Like whitewater rafting down the Wolf River in Wisconsin. Or going on a zip line. Yes, I like my feet firmly planted on terra firma, no matter the continent.

The best adventure of all brought me, a Chicagoland girl, to eastern Wisconsin, where I live on the shores of Lake Michigan with my husband, two boys, and Labrador puppy (who gives away a book in my weekly newsletter … sign up here to join us). Minutes from fields of corn and farms of dairy cows, rolling hills and so many trees. It’s one of the most picturesque places I’ve lived.

So. If you’re ready for romance and adventure, grab yourself a cup of tea (or hot chocolate, since I leave the coffee for others) and a cozy blanket, and join me as we talk story, nature, and finding home and hope in hard times. I can’t wait to connect with you!
