About Daniel Monaco

Daniel Angelo Monaco is a former resident of Connecticut, New York, Ohio, Illinois, and, at some point, California. He's a graduate of Southern Illinois University and has previously worked as a video journalist, radio news reporter, shoe salesman, office manager, set dresser on a soft core porn set, and a production assistant on various reality TV shows. He once took Gene Simmons' lunch order and once tried to eat a four pound steak. He likes science fiction, loves horror, craves fantasy, and feels ambiguous about reality in general. Currently he works at Louisiana State University where he also attends graduate school. He originally took up writing because he thought calling yourself a "writer" is a really classy way to say "heavy drinker".
