Growing up, Danielle Taylor wanted to travel to many places. Mostly, the self-labeled shy-one wanted to be out and be free.
Three countries later, she’s experienced a lot of culture. Heck, she even spent a a month in Ibiza–which is located in Spain’s Balearic Islands for the non-Jeopordy readers. Now, only one thing can be said about her childhood goal.
Having lived in various spots on the continent, Taylor is currently expecting her third child with her very outgoing, South African husband. Online, though, she’s as interactive as M is. In fact, in front of a screen she’s not forced into conversation. That’s something her husband, “the night to my day,” has no trouble doing.
“Where I’m mostly conservative, he’s outspoken and will strike up a conversation with just about anyone, while I hide in the corner,” Taylor said. “Online, no one can see me hyperventilating or doing a weird silent seal clapping laugh.”
Going by her outgoing writing style, the rugby fan is exaggerating a bit. Obviously, the British lass has no trouble expressing herself in books. Falling for You came out today and Captive at Christmas was released last month. Also, she’s in the final editing stage of a novel, Letting Go. The book will be the first in her Adventures, Inc. Series. Taylor is extremely excited about that novel because it combines her passions: South Africans, travel, and romance.
Furthermore, the writer of romance in all genres plans to author a Young Adult work. Watch for the work under her alter ego, Ellie Carstens.
But wait; there’s more. Apparently, the expectant mother has been writing every chance she has had since she first picked up a pen. Unfortunately, lately, those times have been spread thin.
It was recently discussed on AuthorChat how many different reasons there are, in fact, for a writer to become an author. Taylor simply says that it was a natural process for her.
“I picked up a pen and paper one day,” the oft-traveled writer said about her writing journey which she hopes will never end, “and the rest is history.”
When asked how she wanted to be remembered as an author, Taylor responded with “No idea.” However, the well-traveled writer went on to add some perfect information readers need to hear.
“ I suppose I’d like to think they open their minds to what is out there in the rest of the world. It’s all well and good to sit back in your own country and be patriotic and all. It’s so exciting to be learning about new places and people, though. I want them to think, ‘Huh? I didn’t know that about Mongolia,’ or ‘That’s pretty cool about Norway,’ or ‘South Africa is beautiful.’ Not just places but people, too. That man who walked past you this morning, well, his daughter might be lying in a hospital bed with leukemia and you scowled at him because he accidentally stepped on your foot. Or, that woman who brushed past you on the subway–the one you flipped off–might be rushing to get to her second job which she needs to keep her house and two kids since her husband left.”
In addition to passionately expressing that she would never tire of being a writer, Taylor reiterated that she would always write, ”even if I get nowhere with it; I love it.”
She also offered some heartfelt advice for struggling authors about her “release.”
“Keep at it. Read and write and read and write. Find your style. It doesn’t have to be perfect, and you might find that’s your thing.”
