Danielle Metcalfe-Chenail

Storyteller & Connector


I’m a history-obsessed author who lives by the sea in Nova Scotia/Mi’kma’ki (Canada). I spend my days writing, researching, and going on adventures with my family – and my evenings devouring books and movies. My readers range from 2 to 102, and while any compelling tale grabs my attention, my work has largely focused on inclusive histories connected to aviation and reconciliation.

Currently, I’m working on a nonfiction picture book, several novels, and a creative nonfiction book based on my Ghosts of Camsell blog. I continue to do research for individuals and communities around the Charles Camsell Indian Hospital.

I am represented by Elizabeth Copps of Copps Literary Services.
