Dan first started writing stories in elementary school, where he and a friend would skip lunch and recess once a month to eat in the library while hearing all about the new books on the shelves. His love for reading, as with visual art and music, has now extended into creating his own fiction. He is also a huge fan of podcasting, and all of his stories are available for free in audio. He works as a digital artist and lives in Washington state with his beautiful family of five. Learn more at www.DanDanTheArtMan.com

Dan takes what could be a very futuristic and techno-filled world yet keeps it just filled enough with human contact to keep the reader engaged. A law enforcement vs criminal caper using flying cars, jet boots and packs, surgery enhanced eyes as well as fists. All this is packed into a compact short story that never strays from its goal, the capture of the reader and the criminal. There is even a surprise ending. Needed just a bit if editing to capture a few mistakes so it gets four stars. Good job.

My Last Day keeps the reader engaged throughout the entire story by seamlessly combining current technology and future technology in a way that makes the reader believe that this is set in the not too distant future. The author keeps the story fast paced, yet keeps attention to detail, making sure you don’t get lost in hustle….
All in all a fast paced, smart suspense story!
The only critique I could give is maybe throwing in more detail of just how old Matt is….wrinkles, gray hair; crackling joints, etc… would have made me really feel the struggle of the character trying to get through his last day….. other than that a real page turner!
