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 working on a MG/Young Adult novel about a mystery on the Mornington Peninsula as well as a nonfiction article and a few short stories.
