writes both New Age and Children’s books, most of which are currently available on Amazon.
Born and raised in south Florida, she worked for years as a wildlife rehabilitator in Fort Lauderdale with dozens of species native to the area such as owls, hawks, sea birds, mammals, reptiles and more. Dani also worked with exotic and domestic animals. She had the opportunity to work in various areas of rehabilitation including a wildlife nursery, hospital, and outdoor habitats in which animals were prepared for release.
Upon becoming the director of the Volunteer Services Department at a local non-profit SPCA wildlife facility, Dani designed educational programs for volunteers to participate in that included wildlife rescues, waterway cleanups, exploration of the Everglades, and hands on training in animal care, often with local high school students.
Along with fellow staff members and volunteers, Dani received training in beached dolphin rescue and oil spill rescue and rehabilitation. She also participated in the creation and implementation of educational programs sponsored by the wildlife center for other educators in the field on the subject of Avian Influenza (Bird Flu) and also the dangerous effects of the Exotic Pet Trade Industry.
She has also been a certified Reiki Master Teacher since 2001, incorporating both meditation and mindfulness. Her life experiences are reflected throughout her writing.
“The work that I did to help rehabilitate injured wildlife in south Florida was one of my most rewarding experiences. I’m grateful to have had such a unique opportunity.” ~Dani Lynn
Dani co-created The Fairy Tale Project, along with artist/illustrator Jacklyn Laflamme, with the goal of inspiring children through art and literature. From 2010 – 2013, they shared stories and artwork from their children’s book series in workshops and storybook readings at schools, museums, galleries, parks and libraries throughout Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties in south Florida. The unique combination of a fairy tale told with words and art made The Fairy Tale Project come alive and was very well received by children and adults alike.
In 2020, Dani moved to the Appalachian Region of Tennessee where she continues to write, inspired by the wildlife in the beautiful mountains and valleys surrounding her home.
