Dan lives in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire (England) with his young daughter and his shabby dog, Skye.

He is the author of The Caseworker’s Memoirs  and Here Lies Love. Dan also writes poetry and released the charity ebook Life is all but a vast array of Colours in aid of helping Pancreatic Cancer UK.

A lover of YA and fantasy fiction, Dan grew up reading Enid Blyton’s The Famous Five series, secretly coming up with his own inventive adventures, and R.L Stine’s The Goosebump series, before turning to the works of Philip Pullman, Eoin Colfer and Marcus Sedgwick and slipping away into alternate realities. He also loves a good historical thriller too.
