Daniel Welker is an author and educator. His first professional sale was the story “Lutwidge Ranch”, which is scheduled to be published soon in the Deep Magic E-Zine.

Daniel’s greatest influences are Patricia McKillip, J.R.R. Tolkien, AndrzejĀ Sapkowski, and Flannery O’Connor. Ever since he read his first McKillip book, he decided that he was going to steal every great idea she ever had. He’s hoping that nobody catches on.

When he isn’t writing, Daniel’s favorite hobby is meeting new dogs.
