Daniel S. Janik began writing poetry and short stories at twelve years of age, marketing his first 100-page science fiction novella, "The Parabolic Curve" at the age of fifteen. During undergraduate studies, he minored in comparative world literature and continued writing short stories and poetry as member of the former Park College (now Park University) Writers' Club. Over the years, he has received numerous awards for his individual poems as well as his poetry collections. He has over sixty articles in refereed professional journals and publications. After retiring from medical practice, he published two multi-award-winning educational books describing a unified neurobiological theory of language acquisition and learning. Since then, he has authored non-fiction and fiction works in a variety of genres under a number of different pen names.
