My pen name is Dan Reid Shamin. I am a science fiction writer living in Minneapolis. I just had my first play produced for the 2004 Minnesota Fringe Festival. Woo Hoo. It's a sci-fi themed play set in the near future.
Wrote and produced the original musical "The Collectors" for the 2010 Fringe Festival. Wrote and produced "The Judas Cradle" as a one act play for the 2004 Minnesota Fringe Festival.
Sold another story to Pill Hill Press for anthology "Leather, Denim and Silver". One of my stories featured in "Northern Lights" an anthology of regional writers from Sam's Dot Publishing. My horror anthology "Parasitic Sands" an anthology I coedited is now available through LULU.
They will kick you into gear my lazy writer friend.
Hey I saw that you are interested in writing and thought that you might like to check out the Twin Cities Book Festival. Not only is it free but there will be a ton of local authors there. It is at MCTC on October 11th and if you want more information check out the website at http://raintaxi.com/bookfest/.
Met Dan at CONvergence. We had a couple panels together. Great guy to talk to. Multitalented writer and performer.
Dan Reid Shamin is a playwright, a cartoonist, and an excellent writer of old fashioned thrilling horror. Ask him to read you something, but not too late at night.
