Author Bio


Danielle Burns


Reading and writing have always been my passions but it wasn’t until my three kids finally flew the nest that I gave my art the attention it had always craved. Since then, I’ve published a few short stories, some non fiction articles, two historical tomes and a number of biographies. I’m currently living aboard our 47′ catamaran cruising around the gorgeous Queensland coastline so my writing focus has recently switched to blogging about our adventures and collecting stories from the sailing community.


General Fiction, Biographical, YA, Kids Books, Short Stories
