The Author

Daniel Gatlin is a young adult fantasy writer who lives in America’s bread basket—Bakersfield, CA—with his wife Stephanie, daughter Eleanor, and their deranged guinea pig Tater-Tot. He’s been teaching middle school for the last half-decade and his favorite activity with the students is silent reading time. Daniel has spent several summers of his life in New Zealand which serves as the inspiration behind the backdrop of his epic fantasy series The Triplets of Terkia series. In his spare time Daniel enjoys plunking around on the piano and aspires to learn how to surf one day so the rest of California will stop making fun of him. Daniel is currently working towards his MFA in Creative Writing at SNHU.
