At some point in his life, Dan Mulhollen realized that writing was the one thing he did with any degree of perfectionism. An incurable dabbler, Dan's hobbies include songwriting, computer and board gaming, photography, tarot reading, and collections of various sorts. All these have had some influence on his writing. Dan is a short, and often intensely quiet person. Yet at times he is completely comfortable being the center of attention. "I'm an introvert and a show off," he says, often enjoying being a contradiction. To his credit, he has six novels completed at at least first draft stage, and several more as of yet incomplete. He has written a couple dozen short stories, and even more poetry. The Internet is his second home, having been online since April 1995. His principal online home is IRC with Second Life running a close second. He also uses AIM, YIM, and occasionally Skype. He also plans to publish an anthology of his writing with lulu.com, and eventually set up his own webpage. Often nocturnal, Dan enjoys going to sleep at an hour most people are just waking up. He finds some of his best writing is often done after midnight. And he considers a good single malt Scotch, a fine cigar, and an enjoyable book the perfect way to end the day.
