Dan is also the Editor of Murder Ink, a series of New England-based Pulp Fiction anthologies set in or around the newsroom. Volume Two is set for release in 2017.

Dan’s latest project is The White Mountain. From the vaulted heights of New England’s highest peak, Dan will spend a year exploring the very heart of the White Mountains. But Mt. Washington—home of the world’s worst weather—is more than just a Rock Pile, it’s the cultural and natural soul of climbers and tourists from around the world. From car races to bird watching, from bikes to motorcycles, from the railroad to the stars to a centuries old observatory, Mt. Washington speaks to the adventurer in all of us, and Dan plans on turning his veteran journalist’s eye toward capturing it all in his new book, The White Mountain (available spring, 2018).
