I'm Danielle Davis



I'm Danielle Davis. I grew up in Singapore and Hong Kong and now live in Downtown Los Angeles.

My first middle grade novel was Zinnia and the Bees. My first picture book, To Make, art by Mags DeRoma, will be out from HarperCollins in summer 2022!

I read, write, and roller-skate, as well as facilitate creative writing workshops for kids, helping them express their unique voices and imaginations.

My creative writing YouTube channel for kids is This Writer's Life, and I'm a contributor at KidLit TV.

I volunteer with Reading to Kids in Los Angeles.

I blog about picture books at This Picture Book Life.

I'm represented by Bridgette Kam and Hilary McMahon at Westwood Creative Artists.

I've got an M.A. in literature and creative writing, and a number of years ago, I had the privilege of teaching English to middle school and then community college students.

A number of my short stories have been published in literary magazines. Most recently, I published an article called, "Story Breath: Inspiration for Plot and Pace in Picture Books" in the SCBWI Bulletin.
