Pen Name: Dan Kingsley

Age: 23 yrs. old

Current Residence: New York

Occupation: Graduate student

My name is Dan Kingsley. I hail from the great state of New York. I am currently a student entering his second year of graduate school. I have an interest in writing, particularly, science fiction and fantasy. However, I also do political pieces. At my high school alma mater, I was known for being the opinionated editor of the school newspaper and a stellar member of the debate team.

My favorite television series are the now-cancelled Commander in Chief, starring Geena Davis, and Star Trek: Enterprise, starring Scott Bakula. However, the Law and Order franchise, particularly, Criminal Intent, has captured my TV viewing time. Also, I am taking an interest in the Sci-Fi channel series, Battlestar Galactica, starring Edward James Olmos. My favorite movies are Superman Returns, Spider Man, Batman Begins, and lastly, Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country. From time to time, I will also sneak in an episode of Power Rangers, and its Japanese originator, Super Sentai. The aforementioned TV shows and movies have been an inspiration for the topics of the stories I write.
