Packed with a charismatic point of view and a goofy characters, this story is a comedic tale of the hectic world of high school theater." "Daisies is a descriptive story with social commentary dealing with a dead world. It is eloquent, engaging, excellent!" "The Dreadful Life of a Fake, Neon-Colored Daisy is very unique and creative. It steps away from traditional storytelling and takes a step toward originality. Not everything is fake and neon-colored in the life of a fake daisy."

Daniel Gallagher is the First Place Winner in The First Line Short Story contest sponsored by All Booked Up and published by Peak City Publishing. He has been thinking up stories since he was five years old, generally while he was supposed to be doing something else. He enjoys writing, reading, drawing, and playing video games. Still unemployed, he hopes one day to actually be able to find paying work; but in the meantime will continue to work outside all day doing yard work for his dad. He owns two dogs. Having lived in Raleigh, NC his entire life, he has never once left the country, much to his own disappointment. He will always continue to write stories, largely because he can't seem to find something better to do, and hopes to be able to publish many more in the future.
