Daniel J Whittaker


My name is Daniel. "A Night to Remember" is my first publication, and I'm very excited, and I have more on the way. Reading, and even movies, have always been a part of my life, so it isn't unexpected that I love to write. Writing for me comes from my experiences, but also from my active imagination. Life has had many ups and downs for me. I was born with blockage in my throat, causing severe obstructive sleep apnea. When I was 18 I received a Tracheotomy to go around the blockage. So the concept of sleep, dreams, and even the ways of fear have seeped into my subconscious. I just hope to not only encourage, but also to entertain people with what I write.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I actually have two joys: The first joy is the writing process itself. Although it can be tedious, and I like that part, it is the ability to express what is in my mind and place it on paper. The second one is the joy of hearing someone reading what I have written, even if they didn't enjoy it per-say.They did read it after all.
What is your writing process?
Some times the process can be short or drawn out. It always begins with an idea that I find myself attached to. From there it forms itself. It is not just me writing it out, be it writes itself. To keep the story going till it is finished, it comes down to me placing time and thought into it and overcome the obstacles while writing it. There's really no way I can say it is a chronological process, it just is.
