I'm beyond thankful for your continued support and for taking a moment to visit my author page today.

A little about me; I'm a mom first and foremost! My kid's keep me young and hip...that's still the saying, right? I am also a wife, an author who is constantly writing and creating new adventures, and an author coach/publisher. Busy is an understatement, but I love every bit! 


With three book babies out in the world, I'm so excited to announce my fourth book. As my kids are getting older, the work I'm creating is aging, too. My next book is an early reader chapter book that explores a new take on the tooth fairy. Follow along for more news from me and my co-author, Marissa Kearney.


Don't forget, I also host an author interview show every Thursday night. We have made some changes as the new title is Pages & Pours and it will start at 10pm EST. Authors will join me with their favorite drink of choice and we will discuss their favorite pages in their books, and the pages that didn't make the final cut. See you at the next episode!

Every kid is a bit goofy, and Mr. Maloof was no different. Until he grew up and became quite a grump. Then one day a little blue hair appeared right on the top of his head. With his new blue hair and the help of some neighborhood kids, Mr. Maloof is reminded the importance of staying young at heart.

Bubble Sea

This story is untold,

but no doubt it's the best. 

A pirate and his first mate,

on a grand noble quest.

What battles loom ahead,

you'll just have to see.

For every child should take a dip

in their own Bubble Sea!

Recap of the Do It Anyway conference

The One Tree Planted partnership was originally meant for the month of November. With every copy of The Holly-day After purchased, a tree will be planted. Because I think this is such a great opportunity, let’s keep it going! You can buy any books listed on my website or Shopify page and add trees to your order for $1 each!

Danielle is originally from Seattle but has been living in the DC metro area for the last 17 years. While studying at Howard University she met her husband. And although Danielle has always enjoyed writing, she did not take it seriously until she spent hours on end reading to their three children. She writes for them.

The journey of self publishing has been nothing but a roller coaster. This ride has taught me how to research and move forward while making the best decisions with the information I have gathered. In doing so, I have created Books & Things Publishing, LLC in hopes to share that knowledge with you.
