The Darklings - Dan D. Fierce

Dan B. Fierce loves humor and horror alike, and many things in between. A long-time fan of authors like Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and Edgar Alan Poe, he lets his darker side come out in the macabre, "Revenge," demonstrates the tension caused by the corona virus with "Mistaken," and gives the reader a taste of dark humor with "Warning Shot," all contained between the covers of the 2020 Indie Authors’ Short Story Anthology. His suspense-filled story “Abandoned Bikes,” published in Crimes and Culprits: An Anthology by the Indie Author Group, won second place in the Missouri Writer’s Guild’s 2022 President’s Award Contest. Both books were put out by Heathory Press. In 2022, he made his first solo short story publication, Roadkill King and had his story “The Nothing” included in Woodneath Press’s Community Voices III anthology. He has also recently had a poem published in the Horror Writers Association’s Poetry Showcase IX. 2023 kicked off with his story “El Cangrejo” finding a home in the first volume of the HorrorScope anthology series.

He has over twenty years of experience writing stand-up and sketch comedy, and over 10 years of competitive creative writing in online forums. He has also had some opinion pieces published in KC Lifestyles Magazine.

Dan resides in the Kansas City, Missouri, area with his long-time husband of twenty-plus years.
