D.K. Daniels writes contemporary/realistic fiction with both teen and college-aged characters aimed at an LGBTQ+ audience. His novels often stem from an isolated high-school career and rational outlook on life. For the most part, the stories he writes are about young people finding their way in a noisy world.

When D.K. is not writing, he camps and hikes in many countries across the world, and is a major film and game enthusiast. He spends way too much time listing to Indie Folk, giving his dog belly rubs, and tapping away on an old typewriter in the backyard. His love for storytelling derived from consuming hours and hours of entertainment during the most isolated years of his teenagehood. Hailing from Ireland, D.K.'s hobby is backed by his amazing boyfriend and loving family.
