I am Danielle Staley and I write under the pen name Dora Blume. I have been published for three years with fifteen published works. I have a Master's degree in English Studies and graduate certification in teaching writing at all levels from Minnesota State University. I taught English in grades 8-12 for the last nine years. I taught composition and literature and film of diverse cultures at Minnesota State University.
As a certified life coach, I bring a unique perspective to my coaching practice. I am a big believer that our writing practice is entwined with our life and what we believe. I bring ideas from readings on manifestation, life coaching, mindfulness, and my experience and expertise as an author and educator.
