Daniel Campagna


My name is Daniel S. Campagna. I am a widely published author in various genres dating back to the 1970’s. My most recent fiction book, Rare Species, is the first in the new “Tilted Earth” series set in the very near future of 2040 when humanity’s grasp for immortality in the shape of an evolving AI goes horribly awry. Book Two of the Tilted World will is slated for released in the fall, 2017.

I am particularly proud of two stepping stones in my writing journey. The first – Frederick Douglass, An American Slave – is a one-act, one-man play that opened to multiple venues dating back to the 1980’s and culminating in a command performance at the Douglass home in Washington, D.C. The second – The Sexual Trafficking in Children – was the culmination of eight years of field research with a colleague into the underground markets of child exploitation.

My writing is driven by curiosity. The style is acerbic, and few things, events, or people are taboo topics to me. More recent publications include a very blunt assessment of crime and justice – Injustice in America – and Online Education Courses. I received a Ph.D. in Political Science & Criminal Justice from the University of Georgia. Life experiences along the way have been eclectic; they include, among others, a stint as a pro basketball player in Europe, the mayor of Canton, Missouri, world traveler, special criminal investigator, international expert on child trafficking, three-times tenured professor, fast-order chef, juvenile delinquent, and guest speaker on numerous media outlets from Oprah to BBC World News to National Public Radio.
It has been quite a ride thus far.
