Daryl Banner is an author and composer who graduated magna cum laude from the University of Houston Honors College with a degree in Theatre and Psychology. During his time in college, he wrote, composed, and produced a musical under Tony Award-winning musical and Theatre producer Stuart Ostrow, as well as two original plays produced under the mentorship of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lanford Wilson, who also mentored Daryl through the writing of his first novel.

In addition to new adult and M/M romance, Daryl writes post-apocalyptic fantasy and dystopian fiction. He is most inspired by the smart and unlikely hero, but urges you (the reader) not to fall in love with them; they may deceive you with their innocence.

Simultaneously, I'm developing the next installment to the Outlier series, which is proving to be, by far, the most violent, surprising, and unsettling book I've written to date. I'm a little worried by the direction some of my favorite characters are going, and I can't stop them.(less)

" I loved this book. I've been patiently waiting for it and it was worth the wait. Just when I think I got this story figured out and know what the next move is I'm usually surprised that the author took it in a different and much better direction.

“Saving a life isn't just pulling a friend from the fire," he explains, the daredevil playing in his wet,
excited eyes. "It's thereafter keeping him from the fire. Saving a life means saving it over and over.”
Daryl Banner, Outlier: Rebellion

“I'd die for you," he repeats, quieter.
"I'd rather you not," I admit with a smile. "I would ... really miss your heartbeat.”
Daryl Banner, Dead Of Winter

“We'll make a new game of it," he offers. "Rule is, when you want me naked, you just ask. When you want to kiss me, you just fucking go for it.”
Daryl Banner, Dorm Game
