Daniel Stone


I am Daniel Stone. Originally an Essex boy I left home at nineteen to study at the London College of Printing in Elephant and Castle. I moved around London until I met my wife and now live and work in Hertfordshire with our daughter and cat and fishes. I used to use my daily commute into the city as my time to write. I am a season ticket holder at West Ham United and the Uxbridge Rovers. When I’m not at work, football or fishing I enjoy travelling the world, running and spending time with my friends and family.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
It is the freedom to go anywhere or create the unexpected with your personal thoughts. Its a little bit like being on a magic carpet and the world is your lobster only its not a lobster its a massive elephant and you are moonwalking backwards up the yellow brick road.
What do your fans mean to you?
I have fans? I guess that means I'm not as rubbish at writing as I think I am!
