About | Dane Writes

Hi, I’m Dane. Nice to meet you!

I’m a published author and freelance writer with over six years of professional experience. Before becoming a freelance writer, I spent eighteen months as a social media executive at a PR agency and just over four years as a social media specialist at a creative agency. I also enjoyed a 12-month stint as a music journalist for a website called VirtualFestivals.

I write out of habit. It’s what I do. When I’m not working on behalf of my clients, I’m writing books of my own – I have six releases on the market, with an average rating of 4* from over 100 reviewers on Amazon and Goodreads. My releases include:
