About Author Dan Wright
Daniel Jack Wright was born in Anchorage, Alaska on May 10, 1986. He moved to Michigan with his family when he was 10 years old. After graduating from Grand Valley State University Dan decided to put off a career in Business to chase his dream in becoming a writer.
Inspired by his Dad's mesmerizing stories of back-country adventure living in Alaska, as well as a deep love of animals, Wright decided to write a story that would encourage children to develop a love for the great outdoors and the critters that call it home. Released in 2010, The Wild Adventures of Eli Johnson and Curly Bill was Dan's first venture into publishing a book. Following the release of the book, Wright went on a twenty-three school book tour to promote his work. Bringing a dozen animal furs, along with his two live Sugar Gliders, Dan captivated students with exciting tales from his time in the wild.
Encouraged by the success of his first book, Wright went into the process of developing The Wild Adventures of Eli Johnson and Curly Bill series with the second book Rise of the Scorpion Bandits scheduled for release in 2011. Armed with the desire to prove wrong the notion that boys do not read, Dan continues to inspire students everywhere to dive headfirst into a lifelong love of reading.
