About this author

Joe Daly lives with his wife and two daughters in a small, northern New Jersey town which is strangely similar to West Granton, the fictitious setting of his first novel.
When the company for whom Joe was working for as a computer programmer announced to its employees that their jobs would be ending due to a corporate merger, Joe Daly spent the next few months, locked in his small, windowless office and created Strange Town: Volume One.

Before entering the corporate world, Joe graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York City where he studied filmmaking and, more specifically, screenwriting. In addition to his first novel , Joe has written two feature–length comedic screenplays.

Joe hopes to bring Strange Town, Volume Two to readers

A great new book series aimed at readers 8-14, (although the book can be enjoyed by readers of all ages). The story follows three typical 11 year boys as they uncover a mystery that brews in their own small home town. It's a great story with believab ...more

Jeremy I want to apologize for the all the recommendations from me today. I wanted to share the Stoker Award news, and I only pressed the send button once--I'm not sure what happened to create so many messages. Some weird glitch.

Argh...this is terrible...

Again, I'm very sorry.


Jeremy Here’s wishing you a nifty New Year filled with noiseless noses, neato nicknames, noble Nebraskans, gnarly narcoleptic nebulas, and novel novels about nut-eating narwhals and novercaphobic gnats.

-Jeremy :)

P.S.—I’m currently offering autographed/personally-inscribed copies of my novel, Vacation, with free shipping for those in the US. If there’s anything you could do to help me spread the word about this, I’d really appreciate it. Feel free to click here for details:

Jeremy Hi Joseph!

Here’s wishing you a yippee-filled Yuletime overflowing with yard-long yams, yapping yoyo-yanking yetis, yak-milk yeast-cakes, and yellow yarn-yielding year-end yard-gnomes.

-Jeremy :)

Jeremy Thanks for the friendship, Joe!

If you don't mind sharing--I'm curious, do you have one favorite novel?

Also, I was wondering if you'd do me the honor of reading about my debut novel, Vacation. Your support would mean a lot to me. If you'd like to do me this honor, feel free to click here:

Here’s wishing you a fantastic day filled with fabulous fates, fanciful festivities, and frolicking phantom footstools.

-Jeremy :)
