Meet the Author

The type of books I like to write: I love romance with an edge. A good story with lots of angst and a healthy dose of laughter. My stories will bludgeon you with angst and then make you laugh through your tears (I hope).


I enjoy suspense and my characters often have killers, guns, knives, Albanian women with big hands and/or psychopaths chasing them. Somehow they even manage to have sex during all of that running/investigating. I like writing sex scenes. I love writing sex scenes. But the sex in my stories is never gratuitous.


Speaking of sex, I love kinks. Bondage, masochism, sadism, domination, slave, uniform fetishes, latex, toys. As long as it’s consensual, it’s fair game.


My characters: Quirkier the better. That’s my motto. And lots of flaws. Like me. I’m a giant flaw with one redeeming quality. I won’t tell you what it is. (It’s that I’ve got great fans/readers!)


The vague personal stuff: I’m married. I came out to my husband and he is nothing but supportive. He loves to read my stories and edit, but he refuses to read the sex scenes. This is why I have to read them several times and so does my editor. (I’m totally not making that up…. Really…. totally.)


Also, I have cats. And a dog.


The boring history: I wrote my first story when I was 15 years old. It was a fanfiction RP fic starring me and the lead singer of my favorite band at the time. Needless to say, I burned that when I found it a few years ago. And then I ate the carbon dust. You will never know of my erotic limo rides with Dave Ga- er… I mean…. Nothing to see here. NOTHING TO SEE. Moving on.


After finding that story, the writing bug slipped into my skin and began an itchy reminder to put some words on paper. I couldn’t quite find my way to a story that made sense to me or that made me feel emotionally invested in the characters. Then I found the world of original slash fiction and fanfiction.


Having been a gay rights activist, a PFlag member and finally an out and proud genderqueer individual, I felt I’d finally delved into a world I both understood and felt inherently part of. The moment I started writing slash (m/m or gay fiction) I couldn’t stop. I wrote my first story – which I will publish for free once I have time to edit it – in a month. The second story came just as naturally, though I took my time and crafted it over the period of a year. It’s my first release called Shattered Glass.


I decided when it was time, that I would self publish my novels. Not that I have a problem with publishing houses. After all I was a member of Less Than Three press and I buy more books at Amazon, Dreamspinner Press and Samhain than I should. I made the decision to self publish because I wanted control over my story and my cover. I may change my mind and submit later stories to ebook publishers, but for now, I’m all on my own.


Let me know if I’ve made the right decision by reviewing my stories =D.

    Reviewed by Christina Marie at The Morning After Romance: Dani Alexander has an amazing and unique writing style!

    The writing in Shattered Glass is lovely. Dani Alexander has a truly great writing style. I really liked the character interactions and dialogue. There are some typos but I was able to shrug them off on account of the story being so damn absorbing. Like paper towels it sopped my attention right up. RIGHT UP! Absorbent.

    Also, BUNNY SLIPPERS! Enough said.

    Only I have more things I want to say. This was hilarious. The characterizations were amazing. Peter is snarky and hostile. Austin is sarcastic and sweet, but really he's kind of a jerk. I mean, the things that tumbles out of his mouth, and his delightful thought nuggets = Epic POV. I love both characters. I appreciated the realism in their horrible decision making skills. Of course, since they are both so deliciously flawed, there is a bit of angst that balances well with the humor.

    Oh sweet tasty morsel of flawed characters how I love you so.

    I had some minor issues with the crime plot. There was a lot going on. I think some of the events just got in the way of the story and took away from Peter and Austin's relationship. Also, I was very aware at some points that I needed to engage in some suspension of disbelief. Even with that in mind, this book, and more importantly Dani Alexander's writing jujitsu (seriously Dani got skills) completely blew my mind.

    I can't stop thinking about Peter's brothers. Cai in particular. I cannot wait for their stories. I'm practically salivating from how much I want to read both of their books. Nope, not practically, I am. That's definitely drool on my keyboard.

    So-So

    This book did eventually win me over, but I felt like it could have been half the length and been much more effective. It's really hard to enjoy a book when the MC is being a complete and total a-hole most of the time.

    The plot was also reeeeally convoluted and all over the place.

    And there were a LOT of characters. Hard to follow at times.
