Shawn McDaniel


Shawn McDaniel was born and raised in central Texas. In 2000, he moved to Arizona to woo and ultimately wed his beautiful wife.

His lifelong interest in books, comics, movies, television, comedy, and music led to his desire to create and populate fantastic worlds both fragmentary and complete.

The fact that the majority of those worlds are grim places filled with despair and hopelessness, and that horrible and gruesome horrors are often visited on the citizens of those worlds? As much as he would like to blame family, upbringing, or society, the responsibility rests squarely on his own shoulders.

Sometimes, a person becomes a little warped despite being surrounded by normalcy.

Shawn is one of those people.
