Meet Author Dani-Lyn Alexander



What’s the name of your newest release

Trust and Betrayal

Where did you get the idea from for this story?

I’m not sure. It’s the first thing I ever wrote and I just sat down and started writing (with a pen and paper). The story just came to me as I went.

How long have you been writing for?

Eighteen months.

When you write do you stick to one genre?

I’ve bounced around a little bit, trying to figure out what works for me.

Do you imagine a particular person you know or have seen when creating your main characters?

Sometimes, but not usually. Two of the characters in Trust and Betrayal are based on my daughter and her best friend.

Of all the characters in your books, who is your favourite and why?

Nicole is the character that’s based on my daughter, so I’m probably biased, but she’s my favorite. I enjoyed watching her develop as a character, and admired her strength.

When writing, are you an ‘in the moment kinda gal’ or do you follow a strict
plan?

Definitely ‘in the moment’. Sometimes I have an idea that I’m dead set on, but by the time I sit down to write, something completely different comes out.

What are you reading at the moment?

Delusion in Death, by J.D. Robb.

If you could be anyone for a day, who would that be?

My husband! We think very differently, and just once I’d love to know what’s going on in his head.

Where do you like to shop?

Everywhere!! I love to shop, but my favorite places are any malls in Florida!

Complete this sentence; I’m indifferent to…

Politics. I can’t seem to work up the interest other people have.


Thank you so much for having me, Georgie. I’ve really enjoyed being here!

Thanks for visiting and sharing with us Dani-Lyn.

    1. I wrote more than half of the book by hand, and then my husband bought me a laptop, and my best friend taught me how to use Word. lol Thank you, I hope you enjoy it!
