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 picture book is To Make, art by Mags DeRoma, from HarperCollins. My first middle grade novel was Zinnia and the Bees.

I'm represented by Amy Thrall Flynn at Rubin Pfeffer Content.

I'm a writer for children, collaborator, teacher, and independent picture book editor. My goal with every project is to offer kids validation, comfort, and hope. And I help writers tap into their own unique voices and visions. I love visiting schools and libraries to read and craft with kids, speaking engagements, as well as writing and producing animation projects.

My newsletter is: PSA from Danielle Davis on Substack.

I've been a literacy volunteer and mentor and am a member of  SCBWI and the Children's Media Association.

I blogged about picture books at This Picture Book Life for a decade.

My creative writing YouTube channel for kids was This Writer's Life, and part of KidLit TV.

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.
