Daniel Brenton


Daniel Brenton's writing career reads like the menu to a literary smorgasbord ... well, all right, maybe the dollar menu to a fast food franchise. His most notable credits are the co-authorship of a space race thriller and the satirical column The Round Files, published in Stuart Miller's short-lived Alien Worlds Magazine.

Beyond collecting a wall of magazine rejection slips and having drawn a hopelessly obscure (and also short-lived) cartoon strip in the 1990s, Daniel has also maintained blogs since 2006 and has written on numerous topics, including UFOs, space flight, the nature of life, and, notably, the power of gratitude. Really.

Daniel hails from a small town in Indiana, about 50 years south of Fort Wayne, and lives in Las Vegas, Nevada, with his wife of more years than either of them would care to admit. Brazenly, Daniel has rejected the stereotypical life of a writer by having no cats, being unwilling to become an alcoholic, and by having a very difficult time keeping a straight face while writing about himself in third person.
