Hello there and thank you for reading my profile!


My name is Daniel James Miller and I am an American who made his way to the other side of the world to New Zealand by following a fun and rewarding career.  After years of having a few stories in my head to tell and running out of reasons not to simply get to it and write them down, I got to it and wrote the first one down - The Dark Kin.


The Dark Kin is the first of four books in my Shifters series.  It is a modern fantasy, gothic-style adventure series where a community of shapeshifters face everyday challenges (from family to friends) as well as serious preternatural ones.  This series is also written in a fashion to make it suitable for readers 13+ to enjoy, yet substantive enough to be enjoyed by adult audiences as well.  I had a great time writing both it and Book 2, Window in Time, with Book 3 well underway as I write this. Continuing on with a series is an even more enjoyable experience, as we meet some new types of shapeshifters as well as a calculating, dangerous enemy.


Writing was something I had always wanted to do and I am absolutely thrilled that I took the leap to start.  The journey has run the spectrum from thoroughly enjoyable to brains'plody frustrating.  I wouldn't have had it any other way.


If you opt to pick up my book (and eventually books), I thank you for your support and hope you enjoy your reading experience.

*Chinese translation of The Dark Kin will be also available mid-2014*
