Hi, I'm Daniel Dacre. I have collaborated in the publication of a number of works through the years. 'Solomon Seal and the Darkley Troll' is my first work of young fiction. I wanted it to be sad, frightening, funny, uplifting and, somehow, true. I hope I have succeeded.
Inspired by the great Anglo-Saxon classic 'The Dream of the Rood', I wrote 'The Manger and Other Stories'. Each story takes an 'object's-eye-view' in the unfolding of one of the famous stories in the Gospels. Embellishing freely, I have nonetheless written each story in a spirit of 'creative reverence'.
'One Year Under Weeping Mountain' captures the travails of a young southern African nation as it seeks to develop. It is shown through the experience of an English volunteer expatriate teacher. Although a work of fiction, it is in part based on true life occurrences.
'The Word' is a post-apocalyptic epic that envisions a world many centuries after a cataclysmic war. When a warlike people of the north threaten the Island, the hope of its defenders rest on the frail shoulders of a little girl. An extraordinarily gifted girl who must survive at all costs.
I live in the Royal County of Berkshire. I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
