Dan Willis

Biography

Born in Washington DC and raised just east of there in Maryland, Dan grew up among the most practiced of storytellers, politicians.

Like everyone who studies writing, he had to find some way to make money and worked as a mechanic, a customer service rep, a programmer, a web designer, a software tester, and, occasionally, a copy writer.

Eventually, Dan’s writing caught they eye of Wizards of the Coast, and he began writing for their DragonLance: The New Adventures series. Most recently, Dan worked with NYT Bestselling author, Tracy Hickman on a new alternate history Civil War series, Dragons of the Confederacy.

John Porter didn’t expect his experiment to go horribly awry and send every Tommy in town on a rampage. The steam-powered metal men tore down half of Sprocketville before they were stopped. After that debacle, John expected a visit from the sheriff ... not a robber who stole his heirloom crystal—a mysterious gift from his long-lost mother—and then shot him in the chest for good measure.
