About the Author
Dani Haviland, born in New Haven, Connecticut, spent over 30 years in the Arizona desert before she found her real home in Alaska. Rather than spend her winters on unemployment as others in the construction industry did, she began her own business, brokering tractor parts and environmental supplies, using nothing but ambition, chutzpah, and a bank loan to get started. In 2000, tools and roses were added to the inventory of her quaint store in Chugiak. Evenings find her cuddled up in her recliner with two dogs, a cat, and her laptop, creating characters and events to share with friends and family all over the world. Her tenacious and perky attitude is reflected in many of her cyber children, whether they be a British Lord stuck in 18th century North Carolina or a 6'7" time traveling 'fairy' who is out to champion anyone or everyone who is having a rough time dealing with difficult life situations. She traveled to Sydney in early 2014 to research the journey of The First Fleet, and the hardships and challenges faced by those early settlers, most of them convicts, when they landed in Australia, January, 1788. FAIRIES DOWN UNDER is in development, no release date set.
