About the Author
Danielle West was born in a suburb of Boston, Massachusetts. She has lived in forts in the woods, cardboard boxes on the streets of Toronto, high-rise flats in London, gym sofas and penthouse suites in Singapore. She has been a dominatrix, a professional MMA fighter, a wrestling coach, a tarot card reader, a soap-maker, a founding member of the London Rollergirls, a go-go dancer and a playwright. She published her first novel All Change Please, written over seven years on her Blackberry, in 2012 and her memoir Girls Can't Be in the Mafia published through Epigram Books.

"I don’t know about you guys, but I love taking rides in the police car. Whether I'm in the front or at the back, I don’t care, I'm not picky."
