Dani Nicole started writing once she learned how to read, typing up three- to five-page stories about everything from bunny rabbits to boyfriends. In middle school she ventured out of her short-story safety zone and began exploring poetry. All throughout high school and college she was an avid poet, sharing her work with anyone who would read it. After graduating, Dani realized her dreams of becoming a writer hadn’t died along with the imaginary friends from her childhood. She began to write young adult novels, and she is currently working on her second novel, intending to pursue publication. She is part of two writing groups that foster her need for growth as an author and feed her coffee addiction. When she isn’t writing, she’s often lying awake at night thinking about plot twists, buying too many books at Barnes & Noble, pretending she can sing like Adele or staying up until 2 a.m. lost in conversation. Dani Nicole’s fiction and poetry has been published at The Magill Review, eskimopie.net, Typehouse Literary Magazine, Strong Verse and Forever Onward! Review.
