The Magic of Eyri – A satirical fantasy novel Daniel wrote and self-published in 2007. Self-publishing a novel was quite the experience, as Daniel had to do all of the publishing tasks himself. This meant learning desktop publishing, including how to format a book for print, designing the front and back cover, and promoting the novel.

You can read the first four chapters for free.

In the spring of 2009, Daniel began producing a free audio podcast version of The Magic of Eyri, and  did most of the voice acting himself. Daniel would like to have the novel version republished by a traditional publisher at some point (after I give it another edit or two).

Riddle of the White Gun –  A humorous-spaghetti-Western-urban-steampunk-fantasy. Finished, but unpublished.

Em – A humorous sci-fi adventure set in an abandoned futuristic amusement park. Currently working on the first draft (October 2016).

Short Stories

Big Water (about 4,000 words, unpublished). A Lake Superior inspired horror about a podcaster experiencing  strange events in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.


Slow and Steady (about 3,900 words, unpublished). A Steampunk retelling of the Tortoise and the Hare fable with anthropomorphic characters.


A Queen’s Tale (about 10,000 words, unpublished).  This story is a humorous retelling of the fairy tale, Rumpelstiltskin.  Written in First Person point of view, it follows the misadventures of Agnes as she rises from being a miller’s daughter to Queen.
