Hometown: North Reading, MA Bio: At just 12 years old, Danielle Masterson had her career path mapped out – television reporter covering the Boston Bruins after attending Boston University College of Communications. Although the television thing never happened, Danielle finds herself in journalism, happily putting her BU education to good use at Patch. Danielle graduated from the Boston University broadcast journalism program in 1999, seven months before joining the Stoneham Sun as a full-time reporter. After five years with the Sun, as both reporter and editor, she left journalism to give teaching a try. Danielle taught in several classrooms while obtaining her master's degree from the University of Massachusetts – Boston. For two years, she taught sixth grade in Marblehead, before deciding to jump back into community journalism. She is the Senior Community Editor for Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. Between 2010 and 2012, she served as the Woburn Patch Local Editor. When not writing, Danielle enjoys reading mysteries (particularly anything by Robert B. Parker and Chuck Hogan), listening to 90s music and the Beatles, writing fiction and drawing, practicing yoga, and gardening. She is the President of the Friends of the Flint Memorial Library and active in the library community. She lives in the Greater Boston area with her husband, Patch Senior Regional Editor Les Masterson, and their two dogs, Jake and Chloe.
