I'm Dan Jolley. I grew up in a rural Southern town as a huge fan of all things science-fiction and fantasy, and now I’m lucky enough (and stubborn enough) to make my living writing novels, video games, comic books, and children's books.
I got started writing professionally at age 19. Beginning in comic books, I worked for most of the major American publishers, such as DC (Firestorm), Marvel (Dr. Strange), Dark Horse (Aliens), and Image (G.I. Joe), soon branching out into licensed-property novels (Star Trek), film novelizations (Iron Man), and original novels, including the Middle Grade Urban Fantasy series Five Elements, the Sci-Fi/Superhero Gray Widow Trilogy, the Southern Mystery Thriller The Storm, and my first-ever fantasy novel, The Runemaster Homicide.
I first got a chance to write for video games in 2007, and since then I've contributed storylines, characters, and dialogue to titles such as Transformers: War for Cybertron, Prototype 2, and Dying Light.
My very patient wife Tracy and I live with some largely inert felines in northwest Georgia.
