About Daniel

Author of children’s stories Oaf in Ophir and Oaf in Bear River, and the Nila fantasy series: Nila: Water, Nila: Air, and Nila: Fire, Daniel shares his enthusiasm for inspiring and uplifting stories—where entering the realm of the magical and spiritual blend with the heartbeat of all life—and creatures see answers to those deep questions that stir within us.

Daniel received two BAs from the University of Santa Barbara and spent most of his career as an IT programmer, but his passion is creating stories.

Daniel can often be found sipping coffee in the foothills of Auburn, California where nature is still wild ... if you know where to look.
