About Daniel Swensen

2Hi. My name’s Dan. That’s me at right. Someday, I’ll have one of those professional-looking author pictures with a shirt and tie and all that. But it is not this day!

This website is about my fiction. I write primarily fantasy and sci-fi, although I’ve written in many genres over the years. My body of work online mostly comes in the form of blog posts and insouciant articles on pop culture. I am currently putting the finishing touches on my first published novel, Orison, which releases in February 2014.

My short story, Burn, is available on Smashwords for free or at Amazon, also for free. There’s also a bit of flash fiction you could read, if you’re into that sort of thing.

I’ve also written professionally since about 2007, for companies like WireflySEOGadgetOutspoken Media, and STAT Analytics, as well as game companies like Cubicle 7 and Erisian Entertainment. If you’re interested in a professional conversation, I’m on LinkedIn. I must warn you, I am very personable and easygoing.

For awhile, I blogged about writing craft and motivation at Surly Muse

You can friend me on Facebook or feel free to like my author page there. I’m also on Goodreads and Google+.
