My Latest Book Updates

I was thrilled when The Mighty named my new memoir When She Comes Back one of the “Best True Crime Books of 2021,” and I am thrilled all over again to be included by Shafeeka Hafeez in her Gutsy Creative piece.

Three Powerful Memoirs from Underground Authors Booklovers Should Read.” Not only is this a lovely review, but my book is also alongside Lilly Dancyger and Jeannine Ouellette, two authors I greatly admire.

It’s a privilege to be able to share these stories of resilience and compassion, to get closer to lived experiences that are so different from our own and yet, in many ways, can feel so similar.

When I started this podcast in October 2019, I had no idea I’d have the good fortune to meet dozens and dozens of reflective and courageous people and that today And Then Everything Changed would be nearing its hundredth episode.

Here are a few of my upcoming episodes featuring some pretty incredible public figures! Be sure to subscribe to my Podcast on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google Podcasts!

Danielle will help shatter any stereotypes you might have about cannabis with her wit, accessibility, and warmth.
