Author has written 21 stories for Historical, Play, Life, General, Young Adult, Love, and Romance.

Hey. My name's Daniel and I'm a sophomore at Tulane University in New Orleans. I've been writing for as long as I can remember. Thus far, I've completed a few things, and left many others unfinished.

My true passion is in my full-length novels. Most of the older ones are incomplete, and I have stopped them altogether--but may revisit them in the future, or at least take plot elements out of them for use in new stories. Right now, I'm working on a new novel, Three Blind Mice, a historical psychological drama which is set onboard the ill-fated RMS Lusitania in 1915, a grand passenger ship that was torpedoed and sunk during World War I, and follows the story of Christian St. George as he follows his former flame, Blanche, across the Atlantic to stop her from marrying his nemesis, the mobster Preston Drake. It borrows very heavily from my previous novella, "A Little Greed, A Little Murder, A Little Jazz," by taking some similar plot and characters elements, but is obviously changed in a large number of ways.

At any rate, check out my stuff--hopefully you'll like it.
