Thank you so much for having me as a guest today. I’m very excited to have this opportunity! 

What inspired the Heart Waves series? I’ve answered this question many times, and always with the same answer, I got the idea for Heart Waves as I was writing For Always, at first I thought they were the same story but I soon realized that wasn't the case. While this answer is true, it is also incomplete. It’s not that I didn't want to answer the question fully, but until recently, I didn't realize how much more there is to the answer. 

The first book in the series, Heart Waves was inspired by few events. I wanted an instant connection between the main characters, much like the instant connection I had with my husband when we first met. Unlike Jenna, I didn't predict he’d break my heart, instead I knew he was the one. I tried to recapture some of the light hearted fun of young love. 

And anytime I think of love at first sight, or an instant connection, I think of Romeo and Juliet. I didn't want to write a simple retelling of a story retold hundreds of times. I started to think, would anything change and if so how, if Juliet knew their story would end in tragedy? The argument could be made that she did. After all Romeo was a Montague and a sworn enemy of the Capulets. But I thought if that knowledge was there from the beginning, could she still hand over her heart so easily? For Jenna, it wasn't easy, but Reece gave her no choice. He was everything she wanted, everything she could ask for.

The tragedy that strikes in the beginning of Breaking Waves was taken from an experience I had my senior year of high school. I lost someone very important to me, and most of my friends couldn't grasp the depth of my pain, or the impact this had and would have on the rest of my life. In this book I tried to convey not just the heartbreak, but the loneliness, the feeling that there is no one else in the world who can understand what you’re feeling. 

As for the third book in the series, luckily I can’t say that anything from my life inspired it. Jenna will have some tough decisions to make moving forward. She’ll learn exactly where she stands on love and loyalty.  But if you've enjoyed the first two books, I know you’ll love the third one just as much!

Danielle Sibarium grew up as an only child of divorced parents in Brooklyn, New York. Her imagination was developed at an early age. Surrounded by stuffed animals and imaginary friends, she transported herself into a fantasy world full of magic and wonder. Books were the gateway between her play world and reality. On any given summer afternoon she became Snow White sweeping and cooking for the dwarfs, or Cinderella waiting for the prince.

Danielle always loved dialogue and in elementary school began writing plays and short stories. This is when she began to understand she could not only bring her fantastical world to life for herself, but she could enchant others as well. And so she wrote. She wrote and wrote and wrote.

Sadly the first piece she ever sent out for publication of any sort was a letter to the editor of The Home News Tribune. It was a piece thanking the first responders for their bravery and selflessness on Sept 11th. It was chosen as letter of the week.
