Meet the Author

Daniel grew up in Southern California where he made trips as a teenager into Mexico to spend time with his Dad. He spent several years in NYC working in book stores, demonstrating for civil rights, and teaching himself to write. Needing the country, he moved up to Vermont, fell in love with it, and learned the trade of carpentry. After returning to California to finish his degree, he began a period of traveling back and forth between California and Vermont. He eventually settled in Humboldt County, California, built several houses and raised two lovely daughters.

Daniel has always seen his world through the eyes of a writer and he has a backlog of novels, poems and travelogues that he still hopes to share with his audience. This is his first published novel, the first in a trilogy about the 1960s.
