Bio – Danielle Raine

Danielle Raine was born and raised in Yorkshire, England, and currently lives in beautiful North Yorkshire.

She is a Stay-At-Home/Work-At-Home mum of two noisy, gorgeous little boys, wife, graphic designer, copywriter, blogger and new author. After being home-based full-time for 10 years, she developed a severe case of the Housework Blues.

This prompted a journey which lead to her finding new and unusual ways to make peace with her domestic demons. Since then, she has embarked on a subsequent mission – to help fellow domestically-challenged women cope with the mental and emotional challenge of keeping a home.

Housework Blues – A Survival Guide is her first book.
