Born in Yorkshire, England, Daniel spent his formative years with his head buried squarely in a book. His appetite for literature was insatiable; by the time he was a teenager he had read an entire library of books, from ‘the classics' to popular fiction, but his preferred genre was action and adventure, citing Tom Clancy, Michael Crichton and Robert Ludlum amongst his favourite authors.
It was inevitable that he would take his passion into adulthood and went to Manchester University, graduating with a first class honours degree in English Literature.
Daniel now works as a freelance writer and, with the encouragement of his family, has finally found the time to put pen to paper. His first novel, inspired by a business trip to Geneva, where he overheard two technicians from the nearby CERN institute discussing the Hadron Collider, delves into a sinister world where humanity has reached a tipping point of developing technology so profound, that it can destroy the human race.
