Meet the Author


Hey darlings,

I am an indie author and freelance graphic designer. I started focusing on writing in January 2015 and after a few fan fiction stories, I decided to publish Ace of Harts it was my first full length novella. On a daily basis I have a few hundred characters, storylines, and ideas floating around in my mind. If I am not on Pinterest or Instagram looking for my next muse, you can find me on Twitter or Facebook. So head on over, I love meeting new readers and authors.

When I am in the cave, I am happiest. If you can’t find me sitting behind my trusty MacBook writing about hot alpha males, I am probably drinking coffee at a coffee shop, or wine tasting one of the few hundred wine farms in my home city of Cape Town, in South Africa.

I have an addiction to reading (who doesn’t?), TV series, music, tattoos, chocolate, and ice cream. I am constantly looking for a new book to get lost in and new book boyfriend to fall in love with. My favorite authors include – M Never, K Webster, KL Kreig, Meghan March, and that’s just to name a few!

Much love xo

Interview with Dani René 

1. When and why did you begin writing? 

I’ve always wanted to write, but never really sat down and did it. I was always too scared. I guess I still am, but I’m matured now and I feel that my books aren’t for everyone, and that’s okay. I started seriously putting pen to paper in December 2014. I was inspired by a man who taught me to fight for my dreams and I wrote my first fan fiction story on Wattpad. It all spiralled from there into this incredible journey and if I look back on it now, I am so happy I did it.  


2. When did you first consider yourself a writer?

I don’t really consider myself a writer, even now that I’m hitting publish on my fourth book, I still feel like a newbie. Yes, I call myself and author, but I have years to go to live up to that title. I consider myself a baby compared to where I want to be. Maybe one day when I’m all grown up I’ll call myself a writer. lol  


3. Do you plot out your books on paper? Or seat of your pants?

I am a panster! Definitely. I have however planned a couple of my series that’s coming up in the next few months. I find if I plan too much I feel stifled. So I make notes, and do research which I write down, but I generally leave the storyline open for my characters to tell me what happens.  

4. Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life? 

There are some very personal aspects in my books. I don’t make mention of them, but I write from experience.  

5. What books have most influenced your life? 

I used to love reading crime novels, like James Patterson and Val McDermid. I don’t really have one book that influenced my life, but I have many books that influenced certain aspects of life, and since my younger years, my reading genre’s have changed a lot.    

6. If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor? 

I have two, and you can’t make me choose – K Webster and M Never.  

7. What book are you reading now? 

Haha, I tend to read multiple books. I’m finishing up the Indebted series by Pepper Winters, and I’m also reading a couple of ARCs for the blog I work on. I’ve just finished Stripped Down by Emma Hart, and Disclaim by Pam Godwin.  

8. What are your current projects? 

I am working on a novella series which will be published by December, then I have the third book of my Backstage Series, which is the last in that series. There is constantly something I’m working on, but the other projects are secret for now.  

9. Do you see writing as a career? 

Yes, I do. I’m working towards it  as a career where I would be able to do it full time.  

10. Is there anything you find particularly challenging in writing? 

I find shutting characters up while trying to finish my current WIP. I guess it’s a good thing they’re chatty, but when you’re on a deadline all you need is to finish what you’re working on.  

11. Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work? 

Wow, that’s difficult. Really difficult. I have a few. Firstly, M Never, she’s one of the first authors I read and she is someone I look up to. Her writing is incredible, her stories and characters pull you in and keep you in their grip even after you’ve finished the book. Another author I really love is K Webster. She’s got a wicked mind and she definitely pushes the limits. They’re both incredible in their own right, and I definitely look up to both of them.  

12. Do you have any advice for other writers? 

Don’t be afraid of taking the chance. Don’t read reviews. Don’t believe when people tell you that you’re not good enough, we all start somewhere. Work hard, focus, and don’t be scared of what your characters tell you, just sit down and write. If you’re feeling like writer’s block is attacking, then take pen to paper, don’t plan, just write, it opens the mind to new and interesting things. Listen to your instinct, if you’re not feeling a story, then move on, you’ll come back to it later. Never force a story, let it flow naturally. And do your research! If you’re going the indie route, then you need to know what you’re getting into, do not hit that publish button just to publish a book.  

13. Which of your books do you like the most?  

That’s like asking a mother to choose which is her favourite child! LOL. If I was forced to choose, I would have to say Ace of Harts. It’s my debut and I suppose it will always hold a special place in my heart.

14. Do you get nervous when you publish a book?  

Oh god yeah! It’s the most nerve-wracking experience of my life.

Fun Questions:

Favorite food? 
Sushi and Pizza, preferably not together lol

Favorite time of day?  
Night time, like 10pm, that’s when I normally write
