C.S. Daley was born in California but has spent most of his life in his imagination. His first short story written in third grade, the now classic “Close Encounters of the Turd Kind,” was sold to his next door neighbor for a quarter. The neighbor promptly demanded a refund. An unhealthy obsession with the writings of Neil Gaiman, Christopher Moore, and Terry Pratchett have left his mind warped and broken. He spends most of his evening swilling down coffee while tapping at a keyboard under the watchful eyes of his kittens. They are there to make sure he doesn’t snap. He likes to write fantasy for adults and teens.
The Dark Lands Trilogy are teen fantasies with a dark edge (this is code for people die). A mix of fantasy, horror, and a touch of romance for good measure. All three books in the trilogy will be available this year. After which he will publish a genre crossing adult fantasy which mixes urban crime, politics, and a good old fashioned mystery.
