* audiobook coming Summer 2024

a self-discovery memoir series

written by

Nicole Danielle


The critically acclaimed "Diamonds Beneath the Darkness" debuts as a BESTSELLER!


Most people are just living to die. Here I am, just dying to live—is the whisper Nicole Danielle heard on the darkest night of her life. 


A beauty queen who committed a crime.  A lover who committed a sin.  A dreamer told to get her head out of the clouds.  A bright light dimmed by the world. 


Life got dark and every time Nicole tried to change the narrative, the noise was just too loud—

            “You’re not enough.” 

            “You will never be anything more than what you are.”

            “You’re a dime a dozen.” 

            “Your voice doesn’t matter.” 

            “You’re a fat f*cking pig.”


Bullied. Abused. Abandoned. Betrayed. Silenced…

Until now. 


For so long, Nicole Danielle didn’t speak.

Because of her son, she finally will. 


In her gripping debut memoir, Nicole shares her triumphant journey through this beautiful yet heartbreaking thing called life. Her raw, unapologetic, and profoundly vulnerable voice pulls you into a rollercoaster of highs and lows, affirming the essence of humanity. 


Join Nicole on this inspiring voyage of self-discovery—as her stories reveal that there has always been someone there; her voice, however, simply wasn’t strong enough until now to tell you so. 


Unlock the pages of Diamonds Beneath the Darkness and dare to feel the reality of what it truly means to be human. 


PRAISE for "Diamonds Beneath the Darkness"

"What sets this memoir apart is Nicole's unwavering commitment to the truth. She doesn't sugarcoat her experiences or try to paint herself as a perfect victim or a flawless heroine. Instead, she strips her soul bare, exposing her scars and vulnerabilities for all to see. In doing so, she becomes a beacon of hope for anyone who has ever felt the weight of the world on their shoulders."

" We all have a song inside of us &

our stories are the lyrics of our lives."  

-Nicole Danielle


There's a few reasons why I chose to name this

the Life thru Lyrics series. 


 One of the reasons is because I'm about to take you on a wyld ride if you're simply willing to play along.  This book wouldn't be possible without my son, Crosby.  And since music is a part of his expressive soul—and allows us to connect in a way verbal words are not yet able to—I welcome you to join us as I share with you an element of this series that is deeply personal to me & sets the tone for a truly intimate storytelling experience. 

If you haven't already, to join this part of the journey & truly feel the essence of what I felt in the moments of my stories I share, simply leave your email & the details will soon be found in your inbox

Take me on the journey!

Thanks for being a friend!

A request from the heart...
Please leave a review.


DIAMONDS BENEATH THE DARKNESS exists in the world because Nicole Danielle self-published the book herself.  

Every aspect of its creation—from initial concept to the writing of every single page to every step it takes in the process to put a book out into the world (including this website) was done either by Nicole or some friendly people wanting to help out.  This project was not just a labor of love nor was it done just so Nicole could call herself "an author."  Not only was blood, sweat, endless sleepless nights, typing with two fingers while her baby was snuggled in her arms, hundreds of thousands of tears, emotional battles & everything financially that Nicole had was put into making this happen.  She had no choice to put it all on the line and bet on herself because she knew it had to be done her own way, staying true to her own voice—not just for her children, but for all of you who have joined her on this journey because you believe in her... and she needs you to know, that it was worth risking it all because she believes in you too.


The best thing you can do to show your support is to leave a positive review & some 5-star love to help her book reach more people and, hopefully, touch the lives of others who could be inspired by the stories she had an undeniable calling to share. 

If this book impacted your life in some way, please help spread the word and shout it from the rooftops that this book exists in the world and for others to run and go grab themselves a copy!

One day.  One step.  One dream.  One book at a time.  Together, we can make a difference in the world.

The book is just the beginning...

currently under construction.  

"Life thur Lyrics:

the untold stories"

will go active in May 2024!

Check back soon for more details.

Want more?  Join me on PATREON!

The journey to get these stories to print was... well, quite the journey!  What started off as one vision evolved into something so much bigger & more beautiful than I ever could have imagined.  


Along the way, I kept being told "don't skip the good stuff!" But, I had no choice but to cut so much "good stuff" from part one because, well frankly, I couldn't publish a 180,000 word book!  So a lot of stories just had to go. 

GOOD NEWS!  While many stories might be gone from the book... they're not gone forever!  


In knowing there was so much MORE that needed to be told on the first part of this journey, I knew I couldn't just throw these stories away.  And that's why I've started the "Life thru Lyrics: the untold stories" Patreon account.  


If you loved the first book, I invite you to come along for

"a story & a song on the journey to become​"where I will be sharing the untold stories in my own private community.  I will also be reading out loud the Diamonds Beneath the Darkness stories that were published in the way I always envisioned for all these stories to be told.  And I will also be spilling the tea, or vino, and answer all of your burning questions during weekly Q&As where you (my most incredible readers) and I can cozy up and get real personal.  If you thought we couldn't get much more personal than the pages in the book, oh that was just scraping the surface to the depths our friendship is about to go.

If there was a book 1.5 before book 2 is released in 2024, Patreon is the place to be and we're gonna just keep taking this journey and doing it as I set out for it to be done—my own way.  Join me and, together, let's do a little dancing in the darkness!
