Dan's love of comics began when he got a job with a local comic shop. It was there that he started to draw comics about his colleagues and the daily happenings in the store. He takes his inspiration from the cartoons and comics that made him laugh as a child. These days, Dan spends his time playing video games, watching cartoons, and creating children's books. PILOT & HUXLEY: THE FIRST ADVENTURE was Dan McGuiness's first book. He lives in North Adelaide, South Australia.
