Danika Stone is an author, artist, and educator who discovered a passion for writing fiction while in the throes of her Masters thesis. A self-declared bibliophile, Danika now writes novels for both teens (All the Feels and Internet Famous) adults (Edge of Wild and The Dark Divide). When not writing, Danika can be found hiking in the Rockies, planning grand adventures, and spending far too much time online. She lives with her husband, three sons, and a houseful of imaginary characters in a windy corner of Alberta, Canada.


Ms. Stone is represented by Morty Mint of Mint Literary Agency.

It's horrible, and painful (and most of what I write during moments like that is utter garbage) but even garbage can be recycled. I just need to go long enough to unblock the flow.(less)

In my case, I always figure that your first draft is really for yourself, and I often think of it as my 'real' version of the story. Once I plan on publishing it, however, I recognize that other readers need other things from the novel I've written. (And in some cases, other endings!) I've been incredibly lucky to have a team of editors I can trust, so I've had a good experience with that. Yes, I needed to reduce what I'd written - for length, for genre, for story arcs. No, the resulting draft wasn't the story I originally intended to tell, but it was the one that needed to be told for that particular audience. Publishing is a collaborative process, and in the end, it's the sharing that matters. (less)

“Ash nodded. A moment later, sleep overtook him and he began to dream. He stood in the gamescape of Immortal Defenders, Vale in armor at his side.”

Switchback by Danika Stone
“While they rested, he searched for landmarks. The mountains they’d walked into were gone, a hazy gray ceiling of storm clouds in their place. It gave him the unsettling feeling of being caught inside a box. Ash turned and looked back the other direction. His attention caught on the forked top of a pine tree and he frowned. What the hell…? That looks like the same tree we passed fifteen minutes ago. It felt for a moment like he was in a poorly designed game and had just come across a repeating landscape. His gaze dropped down to the path where they’d just passed. His stomach churned uneasily. The trail was a faded smudge, the line of it almost too faint to follow in the gathering darkness, but there was a small outcrop of rocks in the trees that also looked familiar.
His attention jumped back to the pronged top of the branches. “What the…?”

“The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire.”
Ferdinand Foch

“I feel as though, if I were to extend my hand just a little toward the pool where the ideas ferment, I could grab at the idea and pull it out of the pool and onto the floor where ideas must stand before the jury of the brain. There, it must present itself, still from the pool, and a bit shivery because new ideas are not given a towel to dry off with, towels being reserved for proven theories; new ideas are simply pulled and stood up, and asked to explain themselves - not a very pleasant thing really, which is why so many people go into the room where the pool is. The exercise is exhausting not to mention a bit difficult to watch, if you are at all a sympathetic creature. What was my idea, anyways?”
Emilie Autumn, The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls

“The veneer of civilization fell away to reveal desperate animals, humanity at their worst.”
Travis Luedke, The Nightlife: Paris

“Trapped on a school bus for an hour each morning and each evening, she devoured book after book. She explored a hundred worlds, indifferent to her peers and the passing of the universe.”
Danika Stone, Edge of Wild

“What's the point?” her father muttered brokenly the day of the funeral. In the last months his shoulders had curled like an autumn leaf.
“The point is that we're not alive unless we also die,” Louise said.”
