Bio: Dannie Morin is an addictions therapist with a writing problem. By day, she's a counselor who learned her trade working with young people with cystic fibrosis. By night, she writes, edits, and critiques like it's her job. Dannie is a hyperactive participant in the Carolinas Region of SCBWI, a vociferous member of the Sharp Edges and Inklings Critique Groups, and a Scribophile Inkmaster. She lives in Charlotte, North Carolina with her husband, Bruce, and their daughter, Calliope, who is so full of magic, Dannie eagerly anticipates her Hogwarts owl post in ten years. Dannie is a fan of all things Boston and would rather eat cake batter than actual cake.
