Stories were a central part of Danielle Stinson's childhood. Growing up in a military family meant frequent moves across the US and abroad. She spent many summers in her room surrounded by unpacked boxes and stacks of library books. She currently lives with her husband and four boys in Virginia, where she writes fiction for young adults and adults. Her upcoming adult epic historical, Horses Of Fire, cowritten with Ashlee Cowles under the pseudonym A.D. Rhine is forthcoming from Dutton in 2023.
