I asked the author Danielle Sibarium (who is amazingly nice by the way) what she likes about writing and why she is doing it. Here is what she said:
Writing has been a part of me from my earliest days. I remember as a young child watching the lineup of ABC Soap Operas through the day with my grandmother. Long after the shows would end, I’d still have this inner dialogue going on in my head. As I got older, I began to write that inner dialogue down. I remember getting weekly readers in third or fourth grade. They used to have plays at the end of them. My best friend and I would act the plays out, and then write our own scripts.
By the time sixth grade rolled around, I’d been in my third elementary school, living in my third new home, and had to deal with a few very close, very hard hitting deaths in my life. I learned to just blend in with the background. I didn’t say much and was painfully shy. It was this school year that I found I had some skill in writing. My teacher had us write a creative writing once a month. After getting a terrible grade on the very first one, and having to redo it, I wrote with passion, earning me an A or A+ on each and every one thereafter. My teacher often read mine aloud to the class, and they enjoyed it. This was my way of fitting in without actually having to speak and put myself out there.
I continued to write, dabbling in poetry and even wrote my first novel in seventh and eighth grade. (It’s hidden so safely, not even I know where it is.) From the sixth grade on, all wanted to do was write.
I love writing because it’s who I am at my core. I write because if I didn’t my soul would shrivel up and die. Aside from standing back and holding one of my books in my hands, my favorite part of all this is connecting with the readers. I love to hear from people who have been affected by my work. It’s when others feel the need to reach out and share their experience with me, to tell me that my words made them laugh, or cry that I know I have touched their lives in some small way. There’s no greater feeling than that!
More About the Author:
Danielle Sibarium grew up as an only child of divorced parents in Brooklyn, New York. Her imagination was developed at an early age. Surrounded by stuffed animals and imaginary friends, she transported herself into a fantasy world full of magic and wonder. Books were the gateway between her play world and reality. On any given summer afternoon she became Snow White sweeping and cooking for the dwarfs, or Cinderella waiting for the prince.
Danielle always loved dialogue and in elementary school began writing plays and short stories. This is when she began to understand she could not only bring her fantastical world to life for herself, but she could enchant others as well. And so she wrote. She wrote and wrote and wrote.
Sadly the first piece she ever sent out for publication of any sort was a letter to the editor of The Home News Tribune. It was a piece thanking the first responders for their bravery and selflessness on Sept 11th. It was chosen as letter of the week.In 2007 Danielle collaborated with Charlotte Doreen Small to write songs for her CD More. Danielle wrote the lyrics for Take My Hand, and Goodbye, while Charlotte contributed the melody. In October 2011 Danielle’s debut novel For Always was released. She has since released Heart Waves and the second book in the Heart Waves series, Breaking Waves. Danielle graduated from Farleigh Dickinson University with honors, and currently lives in New Jersey with her husband and three children.
