About Daniel J. Hogan - I’m a freelance writer, cartoonist, podcaster, photographer (to some extent) and a geek. I live in Lansing, Michigan. Want more information? View my Resume and Writing Samples. I am also on LinkedIn.
NOVELS – I am the author of the fantasy-comedy novel, The Magic of Eyri, which I self-published in 2007. You can order a copy on Amazon, Lulu (also available as a .PDF) or iTunes Books. There is also a podcast version–53 free episodes.
In early 2013, I finished the final draft of a new fantasy novel, Riddle of the White Gun (about 87 thousand words), and I am shopping it to agents. It is best summed up as a mixture of adventure, fantasy elements, humor, and spaghetti Western films.
SPEAKING AND TEACHING – I am an experienced public speaker, with many lectures, presentations, and panel talks under my belt. Subjects include: blogging, creativity, film, humor, podcasting, productivity, self-publishing, writing, and using WordPress to name just a few.
For three semesters, I taught adult education classes on blogging and WordPress, for the Michigan State University Alumni Association Evening College. I am available for one-on-one tutoring and workshops (contact me).
As of April 2013, I am a volunteer education docent for Lansing’s Potter Park Zoo. As a volunteer docent, I help educate visitors about the Zoo’s animals and its mission–and I get to handle education animals (yes, even the snakes).
FREELANCE WRITING - If you are looking for a freelance writer, please view my writing samples. I write articles, audio script, blogs, content/copy, feature articles, fiction, and reviews of all kinds. If you are looking for writing with a humorous angle, I’m your guy. Contact me for rates.
My online writing has covered a variety of areas: feature articles for Lansing Capital Gains, restaurant reviews, movie reviews, a weekly fantasy hockey column for Illegal Curve, blogs about science fiction and fantasy for Elder Signs Press, a blog on urban living for TEDx Lansing, a blog on How to Speak Geek for CiesaDesign, and a blog on plaid in film and TV for Plaidurday to list just a few.
