Hi! I’m Danielle; children’s book author and speaker. I have dreams of being on the NYT Best Seller list, but at the moment, I am simply trying to get my stories published. We all have to start somewhere, right?

In addition to chasing my dreams, you will catch me on the daily chasing my two awesome and wild boys. They are my constant source of inspiration in life and my writing. Our life is loud and chaotic, but I wouldn’t change a thing about it. I have the best partner in crime, my husband Jeremy. Our family is rounded out by our sassy 16 1/2 year old Chihuahua, Hua. We live in the Chicagoland area and while the winters are brutal, there is no better place to call home.

With a Master’s in Education, a background in television, and a love for performing, I empower and inspire children during my speaking engagements.

There is a place and space in this world for us all. I encourage children to believe in who they are and what they have to offer……and that jokes about bodily functions are always funny. Thank you for following my journey.
