About this author

Daniel Coleman spends his time back and forth between two worlds - the fantastic world of Writing where happy endings are common, and the very real- life world of Firefighting where the outcomes are as varied as the emergencies.

A small farming town in northern Utah is his home, where he resides with his wife, 3 kids and an ever-changing menagerie.

Daniel is the co-host of the CREATE OR DIEpodcast, a weekly podcast for creative-minded individuals seeking a career in The Arts.

Thanks for picking up Jabberwocky, for the add and for the note! And thank in advance for the review! I have been a huge fan of the Jabberwocky poem for so long, it is a lot of fun to find people who enjoy the story as much as I do.

I have a novel coming out in a completely different genre LATER TODAY! (In case you can't tell, I'm very excited.) It is contemporary fiction/tragedy with romantic elements. Gifts and Consequences. The ebook will be on Amazon later tonight, and all the other major ebook stores within a few weeks.

If you are planning to post your review on a blog or on your website, I'd love to link through it through Twitter, G+, etc. Please let me know when it comes out.

Beware the Jabberwock!
