Dan's books have featured at multiple literary festivals and reading initiatives...


Confetti Transparent


"This is the stuff of classic swashbuckling fast-moving adventure, complete with a wonderful cast of gloriously named characters, a deliciously evil baddie and a feisty heroine coming into her own."

School Zone

"A thoroughly entertaining and fast-paced read. A highly promising start to what looks to be a thrilling series."

Confetti Transparent


"Skilfully blending relatable real-life emotions with a vividly conjured fantastical world, and an overarching race against time, this comes recommended for nine+ year-olds who enjoy epic action delivered in a descriptive style, such as fans of Peter Bunzl’s Cogheart series and Philip Reeve’s Mortal Engines."
