Danielle Binks is an Australian YA/MG writer, blogger, and literary agent. She is also a passionate advocate of Pacey’s Creek. That’s right, Pacey’s Creek not Dawson’s Creek. Don’t even start me.
As part of her commitment to young adult literature Danielle Binks is one of the driving forces of #LoveOzYA. #LoveOzYA is a community of writers, teachers, readers, editors, and pretty much any people who seek to raise the profile of young adult literature in Australia.

This best selling book consists of short stories by writers such as Amie Kaufman, Elli Marnie, Jaclyn Moriarty and Gabrielle Tozer, and came in at number 3 for The Book Club ABC’s audience favourites of 2017.
Continuing on with her love of MG and YA fiction Danielle Binks has partnered with Jacinta Di Mase Management to become AGENT AT LARGE. That’s right, she’s free and out in the WILD!!! Won’t somebody think of the children?
