Author Interview with Danielle Cotton

Welcome to my blog interview with children’s author, Danielle Cotton, author of Tajja and the Legend of the Queens. I’ve been friends with this wonderful woman for a decade and am always amazed at her strength and passion. She’s written a delightful book with a poignant message about embracing your heritage and taking responsibility.

Danielle Cotton is a children’s author, history teacher, and proud mother of two high-energy girls, Sofia and Zoe.
