Danielle Younge-Ullman is a novelist, playwright and freelance writer who has always had a passion for books, language, and storytelling. Danielle got a BA in English/Drama from McGill University in Montreal, then returned to her hometown of Toronto to work as professional actor for ten years. This was character-building time during which she held a wild variety of acting and non-acting jobs--everything from working on the stage with Soulpepper Theatre (a high point) to dubbing English voices for Japanese TV (an interesting point), to temping, to teaching Pilates.
LOLA CARLYLE'S 12 STEP ROMANCE (Entangled/Macmillan May 2015) is Danielle's YA debut. Danielle also wrote the critically acclaimed adult novel, FALLING UNDER, (Penguin, 2008), published a short story called "Reconciliation" in MODERN MORSELS, a McGraw-Hill Anthology for young adults, in 2012, and her one-act play, 7 Acts of Intercourse, debuted at Toronto's SummerWorks Festival in 2005. Danielle lives in and old house in Toronto that's constantly being renovated, with her husband and two daughters.
