Daniel Pascoe

Hello – I write fiction, novels that are both serious and fun, packed with detailed characters and surprising events, that wend their way thoughtfully through the private lives of ordinary people, before crashing headlong into thrilling moments of action, reaching dramatic and often violent conclusions.

I hope you enjoy them.
