D.J. Cappella


D.J. Cappella lives and works in the suburbs of Chicago, IL. D.J. has spent the last 12 years of his professional career working around parks and recreation/entertainment facilities where he has focused on facility management with a specialization in aquatics, food service, and family entertainment. Now he begins making his transition from working stiff to fun loving author. He only hopes his stories touch those like so many have touched him with an insatiable need to know more!

D.J. found his love for stories at an early age when he would sit intently for hours listening to his aunt tell him stories of the family or reading one of his favorite books aloud to him and his cousins. While D.J. began his story telling by reimagining stories for his favorite comic book characters, he grew a passion for urban and teen fantasy stories where not everything always works out and the fantastic finds its way into the ordinary. He owes his inspiration for reading and writing to Holly Black, Joseph Delaney, J.K. Rowling, Charlaine Harris, and Anne Bishop. When not working or writing D.J. can be found around Chicagoland reading at the local book store, having dinner and drinks with friends, or curled up introducing his young niece to many of his favorite childhood stories.

I have made deals with demons, lied to witches, and orchestrated the coming of Illumination. I hear you want to know how this came into being, so I shall tell you how I spun my darkness into a war of Light and Dark. Beware the man who offers you everything you want. There is always a price.
