Kishma was the writer for the webcomics Dreamwalk Journal and Nightshade the Merry Widow since 2005, working alongside her partner, Ed Kline. Some background information to Dreamwalk Journal appeared in "Danny's Journal", a series of sometimes-illustrated text stories which began more than a year before the comic and continued in parallel with it until 2006. Both comics take place on Cyeatea, a lush forested world inhabited by anthropomorphic insects and spiders who practice non-lethal predator-prey relationships with a strong sexual element; literally, making love not war. Ed Kline has continued Nightshade initially as a solo project, later taking on new co-writers..


Kishma Danielle died due to complications from a heart surgery procedure.[3] Ed Kline reported Kishma's death in January 29, 2014, in the comments section of the Nightshade the Merry Widow strip.[4]

Danielle's twin sister Kyla Allen maintained an ongoing memorial blog. The most recent entry appeared in March 2018.[5]
