This week on Romance Writers Weekly the question is: “I love daily mantras, they get me through the day and almost always gets me through tough times. What gets you over the hump of a really bad day?”

Interesting topic this week as I’ve recently taken up meditating in the morning. I don’t have a chant per say while I’m meditating, however, I made up a little pray or mantra years ago. Not long after my son was born. whenever I’d start to obsess and worry, I’d say to my self, “Safe, healthy, happy family.” I still revert to this when I’m worried or stressed.

I’m You-Tube browser and recently stumbled upon a video by Joe Dispenza. I went on to buy his book, Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself. It talks about all the negative mind speak most of us do and how it only short-circuits the bounty of what the universe is capable of sending our way. In other words, you receive what you’re sending out.

These days, I’m in serious need of changing my inner voice. Thinking healthier to be healthier as well a navigate the unpredictable upcoming changes at work.

Now on the the next RWW author on today’s blog hop Jenna Da Sie. In case you missed A.S. Fenichel please drop back to see her mantra.

How I Chose My Pen Name: Romance Writers Weekly

This week on Romance Writers Weekly blog hop, Leslie Hachtel wants to know if we have a pen name and how we picked it. Hope you have visited Leslie as she is ahead of me on the hop.

For me, as a  not the life of the party  writer, I always knew I’d have a pen name.  I went through a couple, evening set up a website for one, before I was published.  At first, I used part of my real last name and part of my son’s first name. In the end, I wanted something short and more catchy but still not showing up on Google.

I’ve always liked strong female names that can be used by either gender. My real name is feminine, and not so much me, so I chose Dani, in honor of my maternal grandfather who passed on my first birthday.

As a lover of “J” names, I  had a cat named Jasper and a dog named Jake. If I’d had another son, I would have probably named him Jace so I chose it as the last name for my pseudonym.

Thus the birth of Dani Jace. She loves writing romances about flip-flop casual heroines that have a tough streak but manage to melt the hearts of the hard working heroes they fall in love with.

Now on to A.S. Fenichel to see how she arrived at her pen name.
