I'm Danielle Davis
CHILDREN'S BOOK WRITER, EDITOR, COLLABORATOR
I'm Danielle Davis. I grew up in Singapore and Hong Kong and now live in Downtown Los Angeles.
I'm represented by Amy Thrall Flynn at Rubin Pfeffer Content.
I swim and write and edit picture books and help kids and writers tap into their own unique voices and imaginations. I love visiting schools and libraries to read and craft with kids as well as collaborating on animation projects.
I answer creative process questions at Swimming is Writing on Substack.
I volunteer with Reading to Kids in Los Angeles and am a member of SCBWI and the Children's Media Association.
I blogged about picture books at This Picture Book Life.
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.
Some of my short stories have been published in literary magazines, and most recently, I published an article, "Story Breath: Inspiration for Plot and Pace in Picture Books," in the SCBWI Bulletin, with material from my picture book revision workshop.
