A former professional baseball player and coach, Dan’s experiences range from radio and television to newspaper. He has written everything from sports, to humor to automotive, real estate and even bridal fashion. His stories sound real because he’s literally done it all.

Dan’s weekly columns “Fanfare for the Common Man” and “Finding Mudville” have been seen in newspapers throughout the South and Midwest. Lunch Box is Dan's second novel.
