My mom's a little quirky, free-spirited and bold. She dances to the beat of her own drum.

A fun-filled adventure and celebration of an extraordinary mom and her daughter who find magic in unexpected places.

We are all extraordinary, sometimes we just need reminding. Podcast Legend Dani Vee (Words and Nerds Podcast) invites readers to take a quiet moment and slow down into a story of celebrating the wonder and joy to be found in the ordinary.

In this gentle story, rich in highly visual prose, follow an extraordinary mom who reflects the many forms of modern moms among us. She does things her own way and to the beat of her own drum.

She encourages her daughter to lean into the unknown, to try new things, and above all else - to be herself. Together they discover new adventures, find hidden treasures, learn life lessons, and devour chocolate cake!


"A joyful read, radiating the love, positivity and magic of extraordinary mums everywhere." —Matt Cosgrove, author of Macca the Alpaca

"This mum is cool, fun, loving, kind, but most of all – EXTRAordinary!" —Scott Stuart, author of My Shadow is Pink and My Shadow is Purple

"Shining a new light on mums through special book series." —The Western Weekender

"[My EXTRAordinary Mom] gently encourages readers to be comfortable with themselves every day and to embrace their extraordinary natures" — Kirkus Reviews

Author Biography

Dani Vee is the host of the popular literary podcast Words and Nerds where she chats to authors about writing and books. An English educator and a bookworm from birth, don't even get her started on her favorite book, Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray!

Dani is most content with a blanket, a camomile tea, plenty of dark chocolate and a book! She is terrible with directions, can never keep her brain still and loves a good laugh. She knows two chords on her guitar and hopes that one day she'll have time to learn a third. My EXTRAordinary Mom is her debut book.
