A Letter from Danielle for August ‘17

Hi Everyone,

I hope you’ve had a great summer so far. The beginning of August always seems like the halfway mark to me, but it’s the downhill slide. On July 4th, we have the whole summer to look forward to. A month later, we can see school looming at us, and a busy fall at work, and I don’t relax the way I do in July. In fact, I usually start writing heavily again in August. But hopefully, you’re more relaxed than I am, and can still enjoy the last month of the summer, and take some time off!!!

I get one more week of vacation with all my kids in August, and then after that, it’s back to work for me!!! The summer always whizzes by way too fast!!

At the end of the month, I have a new book coming out called THE RIGHT TIME. It’s about a young girl who is abandoned by her mother as a young child, adores her father, but is then orphaned at fourteen. She shared a passion for thrillers and detective stories with her father, and writes a book while still in her teens. With huge talent, she becomes a successful writer while very young, and writes her books under a man’s name as a pseudonym. She thinks that no one would take her seriously as a young girl in her teens otherwise (and she’s probably right!! I wrote my first book at nineteen!!) The male pseudonym she uses complicates everything, and creates a double life, which she continues throughout her life with some sometimes funny, and sometimes upsetting situations where she cannot reveal her true identity, even in her personal life. It’s an inside look at fame, and an unusual life, of ups and downs, victories and disappointments, dreams that fail, and others that come true beyond anything she hoped—like real life!! I hope you love the book!!

Have a fantastic month of August, relax and enjoy it, and I will try to do the same!!

Happy end of summer!!

Love,
Danielle
