Contact Dannis by email: dannis@dannistories.com About DanniStories Therapeutic Science Fiction. 'Good' Stories. DanniStories is on a mission: Science Fiction that calls attention to social issues, but handled in a delicate manner. Each story brings a character close. A character with a real social issue. Whether the issue is abuse, addiction, divorce, single parenthood, chronic illness, disability, or a combination, the character has to deal with that as well as the compelling problem that makes the story. Characters talk about the aftermath, and how it affects their lives. Dannis hopes that reading her fiction might be therapeutic for a person dealing with some of the same issues.
