Hey y'all! I'm Dani, a creativity and goal coach as well as an author of paranormal, sci-fi, and steampunk--usually with romance flavors (under my Cera Daniels penname). Heyhi! I'm Dani and I'm a goal coach for creative folks! I have 3 novels and 2 short stories published--paranormal, sci-fi, and steampunk. I'm working on getting 2 more novels drafted this year, one a paranormal steampunk with electrical-wielding aliens, and the other the third in my superhero romance series. *insert kermit-keyboard-flail* I've done NaNoWriMo since 2006 (as a Municipal Liaison for 7 years). I was a technical writer and Q&A manager for software for 15 years...but due to health issues now I work from home doing writing workshops as well as one-on-one coaching for creativity, project plans, and getting past overwhelm to get books written! On Twitch I do brainstorming & writing streams, as well as occasional story-heavy game sessions (VNs, Shadowrun, etc.). (Hey, okay, I die a lot when playing video games...mostly bc I fall off of things...but I'm a sucker for cuteness, shiny objects, shadowy secrets, and good storylines.) 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.
The electromagnetic Shields of Malay serve as an impressive display of military might and technological ingenuity. The shield has necessitated some changes to the city's use of metals, but this has been deemed a small price to pay for Malay's success.
