Spotlight Interview with Dani-Lyn Alexander

Spotlight Interview with Dani-Lyn Alexander

Tell us a little about yourself.
I live on eastern Long Island with my husband, three kids and three dogs. I love to read and have had a book in my hand since I was about three years old.

Do you work with an outline or just write?
I start out just writing, but about halfway through a story I set up an outline detailing where I want the story to go.

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?
Getting started on a new story is always difficult for me.

How do you come up with the titles of your books?
At some point the titles just come to me while I’m writing.

Please share an enticing tag line of your current work with us.

If your book were made into a movie, who would you want to play your main characters?
I would love to see Orlando Bloom play my hero and Julie Benz play my heroine.

Where can we purchase your book?

Do you prefer to write with a pen and paper, or computer?
I prefer a pen and paper, but a computer is usually more convenient.

What does your writing space look like?
I have a small office on the landing at the top of my stairway. The desk is littered with folders, paperwork, and scraps of paper filled with story ideas.

What do you enjoy doing when you’re not writing?
I love to spend time with my husband and kids, doing just about anything. I also love to dance, and have worked as a dance teacher and choreographer. I enjoy working with kids and have directed and choreographed several high school plays.        
I wanted to be a dance teacher and an author.
