I write books for children and young adults. Sometimes I write short stories for grown-ups.
Danielle is a Melbourne-based writer. Her most recent novel, her first solo book for young adults, is The Monster of Her Age, upon which she was recently interviewed for RN’s program, The Drawing Room, by Patricia Karvelas. The Year the Maps Changed, Danielle’s debut middle-grade novel, was a 2021 Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) Notable Book, and, in 2022, will be forthcoming in North America, with Quill Tree Books.
In 2017, Danielle edited and contributed to Begin, End, Begin, an anthology of new Australian young adult writing inspired by the #LoveOzYA movement, which won the ABIA Book of the Year for Older Children (Ages 13+).
Danielle also teaches the ‘Writing Stream‘ for the Associate Degree of Professional Writing and Editing at RMIT University, and she is a literary agent with Jacinta di Mase Management.
