Daniel King has built much of his life around the craft of writing. While he holds a bachelor’s in humanities and a master’s in writing, he’s also interested in economics, history and science.

He capped his bachelor’s degree in humanities from Nova Southeastern University with a paper analyzing the film adaptations of “All Quiet on the Western Front,” and shortly thereafter, he went to work for a publishing-services company, where he rose to the role of copy editor/project manager.

The birth of Daniel’s daughter compelled him to return to school, and he attended night classes at NSU for three years, finishing projects in technical writing, pedagogy, fiction, poetry and screenwriting to earn his master’s degree. From there, he and his wife decided to try the expatriate life, and they enjoyed a short residence in Bogota, Colombia, where Daniel picked up conversational Spanish.

After returning to Florida, Daniel performed technical writing and other functions for the administrative offices of NSU, and then finally applied for the position he holds today. He lives in Orlando with his beautiful wife and daughter. He also comes from a military family and attended high school on a military base. That experience helps Daniel feel a close connection to veterans, military families and the many hardships they face.

Daniel also holds several certificates in health writing from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
