Danii’s Writer Pitch & Press Kit

I am the writer and illustrator of “Unschool Discoveries: Venturing into the Unknown.” My work celebrates characters—both children and adults—who embrace and honor their inner child. Having recently published this project, I am now looking to expand my reach by writing shorter pieces for broader distribution across various platforms.

My writing blends non-fiction memoir with a fictional narrative overlay, transforming my tales into explorations of imagination, magic, and the realm of possibilities derived from the real world. I emphasize a childlike worldview, seeing wonder and magic in the everyday—envisioning ovens as foes and yeast as warriors in the kitchen, a battleground where epic fights for delightful breads, treats, and sweets unfold, making heroes of those who conquer their own hunger.

The story I’ve described is a synopsis of a draft for the next installment in the “Unschool Discoveries” mini-tale series. Should you be interested in publishing it, I’d be thrilled to discuss the details further. Additionally, I am open to exploring other concepts or requests you may have.

More about me: A bit more about me: As an unschooled parent of three (ages 5, 10, and 21), my approach to life and learning adheres to the “5 Ease Methodology“.
This involves recognizing and leveraging natural opportunities in the follow: 

  • Environments we live in and have access to; 
  • Exposure to new experiences beyond one’s immediate surroundings,
    • Think about going from everyday animal encounters to learning about and experiencing lions tigers and bears 
  • Engagement with new information provided through a great deal of play
  • Experimentation with the content not just playing but troubleshooting, experimenting, critical thinking A/B testing struggling to reframe and see from many sides; and finally Endeavors taking all that has been learning in a holistic manner and using the knowledge, outcomes and rewards to build something new or try your hand at a project. This method of natural learning embraces the entire child and your inner child without sacrificing natural rhythms, a ba-zillion question asking and trying until satisfaction is achieved.

About My Transition 

I left NYC to find land in Texas to expand the business and grow our own produce for our beverage brands. We wanted to ensure the produce we used was truly organic and provide the truly farm to table produce we needed for our recipes. Along the way there were my kids to consider. You see, Business is Personal. We conduct business for the very personal reasons of financial security and the advancement of ideas and passions the founder and members share. I needed to conduct business in a place that made the unschooling lifestyle possible for my kids. I am growing entrepreneurs alongside moringa & peaches. We are techo-homesteaders who are also herbalists, juiceologists, mixologists and chefs. “Unschool Discoveries: Venturing into the Unknown” is the picture book tale, a memoir about the success of our transition.   

Unschool Discoveries: Venturing into the Unknown

This debut title, serves as a beckon for parentpreneurs, unschooling homeschoolers, and parents deschooling themselves in order to live the choice of a heart-centered lifestyle. The book does this by showcasing what unschooling can look like with characters who face challenges and triumphs very different from school going characters that dominate the Children, Juvenile & YA book demographic genres.
