In 2012, while relaxing on Sanibel Island, FL, Dan decided to take a writing class at the Big Arts Center to help fill his vacation hours. He did not envision himself as a writer, and certainly not an author. The first night of class, the instructor told the class, “In two weeks you will know if you can be a writer.” He laughingly thought that if nothing else, he could go back to his golf game—it needed work!
After the first class and one night at the keyboard, Dan came back with 1,000 words, a title, story line and even some of the main characters. He had already formalized the ending. And as they say, “the rest is history.”
Five and a half years ago, Dan learned something important about himself. Writing was a gift and it came naturally to him. He has published three books in his first series, The Brotherhood of the Red Nile; recently completed his fourth novel, Ted Baker, In Terrorist Gold; completed three children’s book, and is working on his next novel, Abraham Lincoln’s Second Assassination. His mind continually envisions story lines and plots, twists and turns and ways to keep his stories alive and his readers coming back for more. He learned, he is indeed, a writer.
