About this author

She pursued her writing interests to high school while studying journalism and writing for the high school newspaper, and she studied journalism in college. However, she only began to fulfill her dream to be a professional writer late in her life.

I feel that Sebastian Aiden Daniels’ writing is so vivid, his descriptions so detailed, his dialogue so real, that it was like being in his head as I read. But it is not because of Daniels’ excellent writing that I urge people to read the book.

Then Again by Diane Keaton
" As an author of two memoirs, what I most appreciated about this book was Diane Keaton's honesty. From start to finish she pulls no punches about who she is, her strengths and weaknesses, her eccentricities and philosophy of life.

“Nearly every writer writes a book with a great amount of attention and intention and hopes and dreams. And it's important to take that effort seriously and to recognize that a book may have taken ten years of a writer's life, that the writer has put heart and soul into it. And it behooves us, as book-review-editors, to treat those books with the care and attention they deserve, and to give the writer that respect."
Pamela Paul, New York Times Book Review editor, in a Poets & Writer's interview
(something for all reviewers to think about)”
Madeline Sharples, Leaving the Hall Light On

“Way I was walking I was thinking I was running I was sinking You were laughing You were loving I was pushing I was shoving If you’re wondering How I’m feeling Same old thing I ain’t healing If you’re hungry I can feed you Please don’t think That I don’t need you And I let you walk away… Now you can go your own way.”
