Hey y'all! I'm Dani, a creativity and goal coach, editor, and author of spicy cyberpunk, sci-fi, superhero, and shifter romance, as well as slice-of-dystopian-life fiction.

  I have 3 novels and 2 short stories published under my Cera Daniels penname Amazon which I am serializing and reworking in setting and tech levels to fit into my Luridity galaxy here on WorldAnvil, rebranded with A. Dani. (yes, I am a Dani!) :) If you'd like to Follow along on that revision journey, you can do so at   https://reamstories.com/inluridity   You can follow on Ream and get early access for FREE and get it even earlier (as well as scooping up extra bonuses!) by supporting at any of the paid subscription tiers. Woo! I am so grateful to have enablers who giggle at Luridity's terrible puns and who love the characters who occupy its worlds. :D

There's also a character creation workshop on Gumroad! *insert kermit-keyboard-flail* I've done NaNoWriMo since 2006 (as a Municipal Liaison for 7 years). I was a part-time freelance editor, a technical writer and Q&A manager for software for over 15 years...but due to health issues now I work from home helping writers get past overwhelm to get books written, teaching writing workshops, providing one-on-one coaching for creativity, managing project plans, editing, and formatting ebooks.   My favorite writing process is world-building, followed only by getting to know a new character's voice. Both involve me talking to myself, my husbando waking up with sticky notes on his forehead (hey, it was once! no need to keep me banned from writing in bed!), and my kidlet staring at me like my brain's exploded out of my head and bounced around the room. I just tell her creativity is messy. :D   I caffeine and give virtual hugs.
