Daron is the creator of Thirty-Six and author of the first book in the multi-author series by the same name. Originally from Wyoming, Daron has lived in the Midwest and in many towns and cities in the Mountain States region.
Writer by night, Senior Data Center Engineer by day, he has traveled to more than half of the biggest cities in the United States, one of his favorites being Chicago. The architecture, the people, and the regional foods all fascinate him. But his favorite places on earth are those where he can relax, think, and dream.
Not yet an expert world traveler, he has been to France, Switzerland, the Bahamas, St. Thomas, San Juan, Canada, and Mexico. He loves the Caribbean, and wonders how a small-town boy from Wyoming ever got the chance to fall in love with the ocean.
Other published works include Son of Liberty, Promised, The Thorn, and Water and Other Stories.

Thirty-Six is the type of story that makes you want to do some research to learn more about the subject matter. The background story is a bit predictable, and I found that I wasn't as invested as I'd like to be in the plot. When the darkest moment arrived, I didn't feel the depth of feeling that I usually do when such horrible things happen in a book. I found I was a little confused at times and had to go back and reread to clarify. This happened at the end of the book. Maybe I was distracted by other things around me at the time, but I had to go back and make a connection that should have been very poignant to me at that point. That said, I thoroughly enjoyed the Jewish history and legend that were presented in the book.
That thread, and the religious elements, kept me reading when the plot may not have been enough. It was well worth the time it took to read it.
