OK, now that the pretentious 3rd-person stuff is out of the way, let me tell you about myself and what I do.
I do, in fact, live in Lansing, Michigan (I grew up in Harper Woods, a suburb of Detroit). I live there with my wife and two cats (in that order). I moved to Lansing in 2005 after graduating from Grand Valley State University and have been here ever since. They can’t get rid of me!

Daniel J. Hogan’s Comics
When I’m not snapping photos of my cats, I write and draw the all-ages fantasy comic Foxes & Boxes for my website clattertron.com. I publish a new Foxes & Boxes page each Monday, unless the voices in my head tell me to do otherwise. I started cartooning and making comics regularly in 2012, at age 30. I toyed with comics here in there in the past, but never stuck with it long.
Foxes & Boxes is an on-going long-form comic. It’s serial in nature, and more character focused. I recommend reading from the start. Foxes & Boxes tells the story of two adventures for hire: Fox, the not very skilled but well-meaning son of famous adventurers, and Boxes, a mage and she’s not afraid to cast fireball at the drop of a pointy hat.
My previous comics on Clattertron won a 2015 SPACE Prize in the Webcomic Category, which means Stephanie, my wife, must confess she is married to an award-winning cartoonist.

The Magic of Eyri
In 2007, I stopped playing video games long enough to write and self-publish my first novel, The Magic of Eyri (Amazon, Lulu), which my mother really enjoyed. I then used all the skills I learned as a college radio DJ to adapt The Magic of Eyri into an audio book podcast, made up of 53 free episodes.
