D.L. Conner


A Florida native, I was drafted into service as an Army Engineer during the Viet Nam war, where I saw things I may never fully express. I returned to the US and completed Bachelor's and Master's degrees at the University of Florida in Communications and Journalism. A brief stint as an investigative journalist convinced me it was not my calling, and I went on to work writing and editing in advertising, becoming an ad account executive in New York, Chicago and Florida. I have retired to a barrier island in Florida where I have finally had the chance to write the tales I have always wanted to.

I am intrigued by the places in human experience where life's extremes and the perception of the supernatural overlap. Jim Nix has been my first, best companion in exploring this liminal experience, but I hope to have the opportunity to continue these voyages beyond imagination. With the support of my brothers and my two lovely married daughters, I finally find myself daring to tackle these frontiers.
