Daniel Roman writes tales of epic fantasy from the seclusion of the Adirondacks in upstate New York, where he lives with his wife, cat, and a corgi/collie mix puppy who reminds him that the occasional break to walk outside is still a necessity.
Daniel’s first freelance piece, an essay entitled A Grateful Ode to Game of Thrones (which explores how the hit show changed the television landscape), was published in 2019 by the science fiction and fantasy fandom website Winter Is Coming. Since then, he’s gone on to publish more than 90 freelance pieces with WIC, ranging from deep dives into fantasy shows to interviews with bestselling authors like James S.A. Corey and Evan Winter.
Most recently, Daniel sold his first short story—an Aztec-inspired urban fantasy. “The Teotl of Gaming” was published in July 2021, as part of an anthology from Zombies Need Brains called THE MODERN DEITY’S GUIDE TO SURVIVING HUMANITY.
In addition to writing, Daniel is also an accomplished acoustic rock musician, avid gamer, and lover of travel. Nature, and the reverence for it which is a part of his daily life, often informs his work.
