Don Daglow

Don Daglow's creation of Neverwinter Nights™, which ran for six years on AOL, earned a 2008 Technical Emmy® Award from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. He studied writing with the late Professor Steven C. Young at Pomona College, where he received his B.A. in English (Playwriting). He later earned his M.Ed. from Claremont Graduate University and taught Social Studies, English and Theatre at a public middle school in a Southern California barrio. He is a past winner of a National Endowment for the Humanities "New Voices" playwriting competition, and his work has appeared in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction.

He's held jobs ranging from County Fair Security Guard to CEO, from Public School Teacher to Executive Producer, and from Game Designer to General Manager. And more jobs like Royal Playwright for Her Majesty's Puppet Theatres at the original Renaissance Faire, Graduate School Instructor, Spear Carrier at the Marin Shakespeare Festival under legendary directors Ann Brebner and John Brebner, and, well, it's all a diverse set of experiences that add up to a diverse set of books.

Don's career veered early on from teaching and writing professionally, as he entered the games industry early in its history. His writing has graced many award-winning computer and video games, and in 2003 he received the CGE Award for "groundbreaking accomplishments that shaped the Video Game Industry."

When he returned to writing fiction part time, "The Fog Seller," his first published novel, a) took seven years to complete, b) won seven major independent book awards and c) earned a spot on seven of Amazon's best-seller charts, including those for Mystery and Literary Fiction. It remains to be seen if this is a coincidence or evidence of a far-reaching literary conspiracy.

Don Daglow's family has lived in San Francisco and Marin for five generations, and were survivors of the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake and Fire who camped out in Golden Gate Park after their home was destroyed. His passion for this unique setting shines through in The Fog Seller, which even long-time locals have described as introducing them to new places in the area. He works near the Sausalito Ferry, and he and his wife Marta have lived in three different Sausalito neighborhoods.
