Welcome to DarWrites!

Hey. I’m Darlene. I am a nomadic writer who wants to make the world a better place one connection at a time. I’m also one of the few people that can say she has a poem in space on NASA’s OSIRIS-REx mission!

My goal is to write 100 books that entertain, enlighten, and enrich the lives of my readers.

Why the hell would anyone be crazy enough to want to do this?

When I was little I was the geeky girl who always checked out books, helped others with books, and always had a stack or two of books around. Books have helped me through many difficult times in my life and I know they have the capacity to lift us out of our little lives. The best books are ones that we want to read over and over…we make friends with characters. Now I write stories to help entertain and encourage others.

Also, writing is fun and not writing is chaos. I breathe in by reading and exhale by writing.

I believe that humanity needs something fun to look forward to…so my Zombie Slayer says. Don’t know Julia? Check out her story – she’s one of my favorite creations.

So grab a cup of coffee or tea and pull up a chair. I hope you enjoy what I write.
