Where: Belgrave Library, Reynolds Lane, Belgrave, Vic.

When: Thursday April 16th, 1pm.

Danielle will be speaking about her background, education, inspiration, and the themes and stories of each of her published books.

Her most recent book is – Blom – A Woman’s Journey to Individuation – A novel in verse

Blom, meaning flower in German, is the incredible story of a woman who channels philosophies and music of legendary thinkers and musicians, in a subconscious language heard only in dreams.

As told through poetic form, a woman receives psychic communications, with a subconscious understanding and knowledge of German. The poetic form adds a musicality and lyricism to the novel, and evokes the symbolic quality of dreams.

The novel begins at a séance in the early 1900s, attended by Swiss psychoanalyst Carl Jung, where his cousin Helene Prieswerk as medium, summons the spirits of the dead.

Author’s background:
The author’s background includes a Master of Arts in Writing and Literature, and books available in libraries throughout Australia, including a psychological thriller novel, Blood for St Valentine, Ellipse – a collection of poetry, short fiction, Raiders of the Headland and other stories, the children’s novel, The Orphan of Botany Bay, and the thesis, Psychological Reflections on Post-Modernist Gothic Literature.

This year the Wheeler Centre in Melbourne is turning five!

Located in Melbourne, the Wheeler Centre for Books, Writing and Ideas is a hub for Victoria’s literary community. It is right next to the State Library of Victoria, and home to literary organisations like the Victorian Writers’ Centre, Melbourne Writers Festival, Emerging Writers’ Festival, Express Media, and Australian Poetry.

To celebrate their birthday, the Centre is throwing a series of Galas. The next is on Saturday – ‘On Five. A Gala Night of Storytelling.’
