Please feel free to contact me if you would like to arrange an interview, talk, or have me participate on a panel.

I am most comfortable in English but can also do Q&A sessions en français. I enjoy interacting with audiences of all ages and backgrounds, and am comfortable doing virtual visits. Here are some sample talks I’ve given recently that I’d love to tailor for your school or organization:

Recent Appearances:

I regularly give talks, facilitate workshops, moderate panels, and emcee events for libraries, festivals, and organizations such as Canada’s History

  • Summer 2019: Alis the Aviator events across North America
  • March 2019 in St. Albert, Alberta – In This Together: An Honest Chat About Reconciliation Since the TRC
  • May 2018 at Writefest in Houston, Texas.
  • April 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada for the conference of the National Council on Public History


Tex Thompson, Author: “Thank you SO MUCH for running such a fantastic panel at Writefest. I am just bowled over at the thoughtfulness and exceptional preparation you put into making sure everybody there had a good time. ANY conference would be lucky to have you as a presenter!” 

Glenn Smith, student: “In Danielle’s class you get more than theory; you get an inside look at the freelance business from an accomplished writer with real-world experience. Her generous and encouraging teaching style makes you feel that if you take the lessons learned and put in the effort, you, too, can get published.”
