About Me

Hello, I’m Daryl.

No, I don’t have another brother Daryl, though  that’s been inquired of me just a few million times. I have a brother Joel, a wife Linda, sons David and Daniel, and daughter Rachel.

I'm a writer. From childhood I kindled three dreams: to one day become a father, a writer and a baseball player.

Two of three ain't bad. (I shall neither confirm nor deny holding out deluded hope for the third.) Most of what I write is fiction but not all. I write the occasional article and guest post, and conduct some interviews. I am an English major, have a masters in social work and have been an early childhood leader/advocate for many years. I am sports-obsessed, love animals, and love to share the veritable treasure trove of pithy comments from my kiddos, particularly my little girl about whom I receive regular requests for more “Rachelisms.” So while most of what I write on this site will be fiction or about my fiction, I want this also to serve as a forum for sharing and discussing and having a little fun. So join in, say your piece. I’d be much obliged.

So, thanks for dropping by. To all those writers out there, Write On, and to the readers (if you’re the former you know you have to also be the latter), Read On, and to each of you, keeping being you and doing what you do. I look forward to connecting.
