My story

I’m just a nature loving, self-proclaimed philosophizing, writing, travelling, rock n’ rolling, fun-loving 21 year old extraordinaire (24 now, old hag status). As an English major at Truman State University, it goes without saying that I love writing. I love writing anything, really, but mostly creative prose. I work[ed] for the university newspaper The Index and aΒ MidwestΒ travel guide Detours as well. I also like to dabble in scenic photography when the mood (or right light) strikes.


Update: 24-year-old Danielle still loves writing, traveling (did you see I dropped an l in traveling? I’ve learned you that can do that now, because English makes no sense mostly, that’s what my degree taught me), and rock and rolling just as much, perhaps just with much more coffee added into the mix. I graduated last year and currently work for Adventure Student Travel as the lead writer and occasional freelancer for Missouri Life Magazine’s Dining Worth the Drive section.

Currently I am deeply involved in the ideas and outlines of two amazing novels, as well. I am using this blog as a creative outlet and sort of ‘linked in’ with fellow writers and photographers, so feel free to connect and start a conversation!

  1. Danielle- thanks for following “Oldbones”. I wish I’d had your expressive energy when I was 21 (which was a depressingly long time ago…)



  2. Hey Danielle nice blog look forward to reading it. I am a writer myself very prolific and creative. I have worked in all genres I have written over a 1000 short stories and over 30 books. I love the horror genre. I wrote some childrens stories for a while and enjoyed that. I am very happy for your success and look forward to connecting!

  3. Thanks for the follow, Danielle, and it’s nice to meet someone of ‘old hag’ status at 24. πŸ™‚ I wouldn’t mind being that age again. Your new career sounds a lot of fun and I wish you every success in it. πŸ™‚

  4. Cheers to you for popping in to peruse my thoughts and life, unless you’re a spy, or a mind-reader, or a relative wanting funding. Aside from that Thank you! Please feel free to poke about (please tread lightly as I’ve just had the carpet cleaned).

    Ah, and drinks are at 4.

  5. Hi, thanks for stopping by What a lovely blog. I love the presentation. I am a 60 something #old hag#, still learning the ropes about how to set up a blog. Yours will be one I look to for inspiration.

  6. Thank you for taking the time to visit Much appreciated.

    I am fascinated by the marvels our tiny planets offers, as well as the glorious and outrageous antics its inhabitants get up to, so you can be sure I’ll catch up with what you’re doing as often as I can.

    I look forward to our next encounter.


    Psssst. My latest novel, Swell, click here for reviews

  7. Thanks for checking out my blog and the follow! It’s cool that you work for a student travel company. I think any student should take the opportunity to travel if they can!

  8. Ah,lovely! As a former junior high and high school writing teacher (now retired) I am always thrilled to find a new and inventive young writer to follow… and stalk… and steal ideas from. I am at present an ultra-goofy blogger and failing independent writer of silly, pointless fiction that costs me more to write than it makes. And I truly appreciate any writer who has stumbled on the secret that the formal rules of writing English are absolute nonsense. I intend to scrutinize your coming prose output to find any and all creative ideas and borrow them…. borrow, not steal. That’s different, right?

  9. Love the picture – keep writing it’s a grea tthing to do. Thanks for the visit and the like. Good to connect with others on a similar path though I’ve a few more years on my clock.Have fun.
