Dan was legally blind for a short while, until his sight was restored. He is semi-retired and felt compelled by events to write this book.
When did you first start writing?
I started in 1992 when I wrote a book about my experiences in New York City. It was not published but was an interesting exercise. There was no self-publishing.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Zimbabwe Africa previously known as Southern Rhodesia. It had a very good schooling system and was exciting for a small boy in a small town in the bush. Not the jungle, although there was some very dense growth in some areas. The teachers and the discipline made for a thorough education.
