LETTER | Meet the superheroine Danielle.

Dear readers,

I’m pleased to announce my new — and first — fiction book. It’s a novel about a precocious young girl. She’s a heroine who uses her super-mind, along with smart technologies and the help of her amazing friends — to solve some of our biggest global problems. She finds solutions with her creative thinking. I wrote this positive story to showcase the power of ideas — together we can all create a better tomorrow. I believe our future is a world of abundance. My message is: anyone can be a Danielle!

Get to know the new novel — with sample chapters below:
