Black Writers Read: Danielle Jernigan

Please join us on Saturday 4/15 at 12 pm ET when we talk with Danielle Jernigan about her book in development, Healing Mother Wounds.

Danielle Jernigan is a certified doula, writer, book coach, and host of the Write to Heal Podcast. Her work in maternal health focuses on helping doulas leverage their expertise and creative aspirations so they can write a heart-centered book that elevates their presence and attracts aligned clients with ease. Danielle’s writing has been featured in Madame Noire Magazine, Your Tango, and Nourishing Word Blog and she’d been quoted in the Washington Post, NYT Parenting Newsletter, and POPSUGAR Wellness.

Prior to pursuing her literary career, she spent 20 years in medical research which garnered her co-authorship in 20 publications, including two textbooks. Her academic checklist includes a bachelor’s in biology from Delaware State University. Master in medical science from Indiana University School of Medicine and Graduate Studies in Publishing and Creative Writing at Drexel University.

She’s a vegan in principle — more of a whole foods-based flexitarian who won’t eat certain meats. But loves ethnic food so much she’ll dabble here and there. She describes herself as a super opinionated introvert and quite bookish who loves art museums and sculptures, Japanese gardens, and black-and-white movies. Long drives towards the ocean and homegrown watermelons with seeds. She’s the mother of two children and resides in Indiana with her youngest daughter Zoë.

Danielle is represented by Carly Watters of PSI Literary Agency.
