Danny B. McGuire spent his formative teenage years around the gaming table, creating entertaining characters and memorable adventures for his friends to enjoy. When the computer revolution took the world by storm, he attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham and chose a career in computer programming. However, his love of storytelling continued to grow and evolve, until he had to share these new tales with everyone. This desire led to the creation of Mark IV Anna and her series of novels, which is his first foray into creative writing. He currently lives in Northwestern Alabama with his wife and two sons.
