D. L. Silverman


D. L. Silverman was born deep in the American south, but grew up and spent most of his youth in various states including Michigan, Ohio, and Texas. Throughout his life and military career, he has had the opportunity to live and visit overseas in such countries as the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, and Israel. But his fondest memories were of his high school days living in Cincinnati, Ohio romping around with his friends and scrapping together enough pennies to buy dinner at Skyline Chili. He spent a good many weekends wrecking havoc playing D&D, devouring large sums of Coke-a-Cola and pizza, and reading any and all sci-fi/fantasy novels he could get his hands on. As a result of his love of reading and vivid imagination, D. L. Silverman had always wanted to write a novel, but the cares of life seemed to keep him from ever realizing that goal.

Not long after high school, D. L. Silverman went to serve his country in the US Marines and is a Desert Storm veteran. After being honorably discharged, he went on to pursue a career in art. He has created graphics for everything from traditional portraits to book covers and film posters and even has created real-time 3D game models and environments for games and business applications. Even though he had always loved his art, D. L. Silverman never forgot his dream of writing.

In 2009 he decided to finally plunge in and make his dreams a reality. Grabbing pen and paper (literally!) D. L. Silverman began to pen the words to the prologue of Broken Dreams, the first book in the Dreamshift Chronicles trilogy. Years of pent up ideas and creativity came spilling forth on the pages and soon a story began to take on a life of its own.

Broken Dreams represents a beginning. More books are to follow. For once D. L. Silverman had put words and ideas to paper to form a story, he became addicted. The stories needed to be told, needed to find a life in the mind of others as they read and participated in the lives of those created.
