About the Author
Slayer of dragons and demons, charmer of princesses, hero to all mankind…all of these and more are some of the greatly exaggerated and often fabricated accomplishments of the author. Born in Columbus, Ohio, and quickly whisked away to the small town of Ashland where he was raised, Daniel was an only child and lived a quiet, happy life until he was 7, at which point the first of his three younger siblings was born. Now 30 at the time of The Second Crusade’s publishing, Daniel resides in Wooster, Ohio, with his significant other and her accursed overweight cat. The Second Crusade is his second published work, being a prequel story to The Vlishgnath Chronicles. His hobbies (aside from reading and writing) include video games, Dungeons & Dragons (he prefers the Pathfinder system), and enjoying good beer with great friends.
