    "A selection of me." I have just finished reading 'a selection of me', and can quite honestly say that I am bemused. Not with the anthology of poetry or the writers intentions or style but bemused at my ability to overlook the obvious and the honesty in my everyday existence. Which sounds much bleaker and certainly deeper then I mean it to. Some of the works within are deeply cynical about what I can only refer to as 'office life', and some are simply observational and aware. Daniel very clearly reminded me about the difference between living and dreaming. How we accept what we have rather then striving to achieve more. He makes you ask, ‘why am I settled in a job, rather then pursuing not a career but a dream’. One thing that is clear and consistent is that Daniel is a writer trapped in the obscurity of 'life'. This book, his debut strives to escalate Daniel's status in a field he actually wants a promotion, as a creative writer. He wants to be the person in the shirt, not... More > the name tag on it. 'A Selection of Me' has clearly been written over quite some period of time, as Daniel's poetry and prose rises in and out of the depths of his depression, elation, confidence and insecurities. We take a journey with him, only to arrive at no set destination. He gives us insight into his inner soul, but then tells to f*@k off and mind our own business! We gain insight into a truly sensitive heart and get to see a little of his truly troubled soul. On finishing the book I feel like I should either give Daniel a hug or a wide berth! Either way I will certainly be giving him a pat on the back. ‘A selection of me’ is an innovative, amusing and at times provocative collection of works that remind me to ask the question why, to look at my dreams and aim high but without greed and to live freely but with conscience? If Daniel’s musical efforts are as rewarding as his written work, I will definitely be buying a ticket… …just maybe not a drink!< Less

    "So Moved" By Kevra: Wow. What can I say? I’m sitting here reading your book and I’m… speechless. Speechless for so many reasons. Speechless that you hurt so much. Speechless at how well you transport me in some passages. Your loo story is a giggle, a nice change of pace from the rest. Well done Dan.
