Danielle Herzog is an elementary school counselor by day, and by night a kid lit writer, freelance writer, speaker, mother and member of one ridiculously insane large Italian family. And by insane, she’s referring to aunts that still pinch her cheeks, and uncles who slap her husband’s face when they say hello.  She has about thirty cousins whose names are Godfather characters.

As a freelance writer, she has written everything from restaurant reviews, to the style section, to book reviews, to parenting. Her work has been featured in The Washington Post, The Chicago Tribune, Parenting, The Huffington Post, Mamalode, AOL, What to Expect,  Barnes & Noble, and Nickelodeon, as well as other national and local publications. She’s spoken and led workshops on writing and blogging, as well as provided on-air reporting and corresponding for various television shows.

She is excited for her debut picture book to be published Fall of 2023 by Beaming Books.
