ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Daniel T. Moore

My name is Daniel Moore and I live in Hamilton Ontario where I attend McMaster University. I am a writer in my spare time, dreaming of sometime making it big and I am a full-time student working towards a B.A. in English and History. My favourite books (I don't like everything from any one author.) are George Orwell's 1984, Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, Guy Gavriel Kay's Tigana and William Gibsons Mona Lisa Overdrive. I am the Warhammer Executive of the McMaster nerd club and love to talk about writing. If you are interested in what I have been writing, or what I plan on writing in the future you can contact me directly at DanielThomasMoore@hotmail.com. I'd love to hear from you.
