Dan Ryan lives in Brisbane is married, and has two adult children.
A relatively new children’s writer, Dan has enjoyed considerable success with all 4 books debuting in the Top 10 Best Seller list. Sam Sam and Marzipan ‘The Jungle’ and Maximilian and the Magic Story Book ‘Land of Dinosaurs’ both debuted at #1 on Australia Best Seller list. With a passion for writing children’s books both series are intended to be imaginative and educational.
Dan aims to appeal to parents who he hopes will enjoy reading his stories with their children, and children too will enjoy reading his stories over and over.
Having long held a desire to be an author Dan has now produced and published six books and a further two (one in each series) are underway and will be added to the website within weeks.
With a background in finance and banking Dan has enjoyed a number of Senior Management positions in banking over a twenty six year career prior to establishing his own diverse Financial Services business in 2003, which he continues to manage day to day when not plotting his next book.
WOW…imagination like only a little boy can have, captured in a picture book! Sam is a four year old boy whose imagination sees his cubby friends, Marzipan (his faithful cat – who also talks), Spoon, Dish and Tock (the cubby wall clock) come to life and join him on each adventure. An adventure where seas are filled with chocolate; mountains are made of marshmallow, vanilla icebergs and more.
