When he’s not writing, Daniel May works at a warmblood breeding operation. As a part-time writer, May says his career pays “most of the bills… I definitely don’t make a living.”
Stephen King and Jack London are authors who have both influenced May's own writing. However, May feels “more influenced by TV shows and movies with strong dialogue or atmosphere.”
His love for writing developed in the fourth grade during spelling tests where he was tasked to use each word in a sentence. “Instead of writing single unrelated sentences, I would turn my spelling words into a short story.”
“The biggest challenge I've faced as a writer is simply the struggle to put work out there, be persistent with marketing, and not being afraid to let people read and critique my work publicly.”
