Danielle Riedel grew up just outside of Philadelphia. She attended Sarah Lawrence College in New York where she received a very diverse education. Her studies included psychology, biology, philosophy, anthropology, and fiction writing. After graduating in 2004, she spent time as a bartender, a police cadet, a counselor, an actress, a waitress, and an author. She currently resides in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania with her husband and two quirky orange cats. Her hobbies are classified.
Her first two dozen stories were for her friends' eyes only. To her surprise and delight, they enjoyed them and rewarded her with their encouragement and support. J.S. kept writing and learning.
She captured her dream with her first novel "Salvaged" then carried on with two series. The "Duty Bound Series" (Unscripted #1, Unearthed #2, and Untamed #3) and the "Heart & Endurance Series" (Cold Sweat #1, Thin Ice #2, and Hot Water #3).
J.S. lives in Alberta with her amazing hubby, and when she's not visiting her children and little granddaughter, she's working on her next novel under the northern lights.
