Darin Dance

Darin Dance

After assisting many other authors, Darin decided it was time for him to write his own stories and share his unique humour. 

Drawing on his life experiences he crafts novels with a cast of characters that you just keep wanting more of and a tale that is both current and timeless.

When he is not hunting down “out of print” books in charity shops and other odd places to add to his own extensive library, you can find Darin studying some dusty old volume, working out the best way to mix a cocktail or doting on a stray cat.
