Goodreads Author




Member Since
January 2010

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.

Daniel liked a quote
Carry On, Warrior by Glennon Doyle Melton
“I love God, whoever he is, and I’d really like to get closer to him. I’ve been thinking about how one of the simplest ways to get close to a woman is to be good to her children. To be kind and gentle and to pay close attention to the things that make them special. To try to see her children the way she sees her children. And how God made us in his image. How he is the mother and father of all of us. So I wonder if that would be the best way to get closer to him too. By being kind and gentle to his children and noticing all of the things that make them special. So many of us spend our time trying to find God in books, but maybe the simplest way to God is directly through the hearts of his children.”

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!
