About Daniel Side
My first book was co-authored with my cousin at eighteen, written on typewriters using carbon paper. An English mystery novel, he wrote one chapter, I wrote the next. It was a sure fire scheme (one of many) to make us a lot of money. Surprisingly, the offers didn’t roll in. But I guess it was the first feeble start of my writing career.
Take some time out: to raise a family, have a teaching career, write and produce school plays, build our log home, restore a classic Mustang, a ’69 Mach 1 for enthusiasts, and go on lots of canoe trips up north in Algonquin Park.
Twenty years later, unable to find a science fantasy adventure I liked, to the encouragement of my wife, I wrote my own. Now here I am working on book number five.
So what do you have waiting in store for you? My books are varied, but whether it’s suspense, a thriller, or an adventure story, all contain characters in trouble who you will care about and root for.
He’s never perfect and neither is she, but the attraction is inevitable as they learn about each other on an adventure seldom of their choosing.
I like to write the stories that this author would like to read. I’m willing to bet that you’ll enjoy them too.

AN ADVENTURE LIKE NO OTHER.
One part, exotic, jungle setting, one part romance, and two parts gripping, heart-pounding suspense.
A century after he is washed down the Kalabakan River near death, the discovery of a crude map lends credence to the “Legend of the Riverman”. The legend, if proven true, could influence the course of the war and save tens of thousands of lives.
Living in a beach shack, salvage diver Jake Bennett knew a couple of things for sure: he needed a job, he didn’t want to die in the jungle… but he’d never met anyone like “nurse” Brockman.
The last place he wanted to be was on the Borneo coast, waiting for the Japanese to invade the island. That's why he agreed to guide British Red Cross nurse Katherine Brockman into the jungle’s interior to check the condition of malaria in native villages. At least that’s what he kept telling himself.
The two clash when Jake discovers that the mission has nothing to do with malaria. Worst still, Katherine suspects that she’s not the only one searching for the truth behind the legend. And she worries about Jake Bennett, the charismatic, wild card in the mix.
Soon, the dangers of the jungle, wrapped in the unforgiving heat, threatens to end not only their mission, but their lives.
However, nothing can prepare them for what they discover, hidden deep in an unexplored jungle basin.
A new, action-packed, adult adventure.
On May 18, 2019, Ethan McGuire, a Dodge City detective, finds the diary of his ancestor, Declan McGuire, a Dodge City Deputy Marshal. There is only one entry – from May 18, 1876 – exactly 143 years ago.
The next night he is shocked when he finds a second entry. Ethan tentatively pens a question, and soon a conversation begins.
With a link to the past, Ethan creates a desperate plan. He will change events in the past to save the life of his fiancé.
However Ethan is unaware that a contrived change to the past creates a new history - one that could threaten the lives of all.
Julie, a single parent, knows she has found her man, but fears she is in over her head. She’s never sure of what he will do next, for his actions and moods are so unpredictable.
Arsonist David Pierce has discovered Julie. She looks so much like his former teacher: the one who became his lover - and then rejected him. The fires he sets are not enough. She’s back. It’s his second chance - and he’s not a kid any more.
When David’s advances are rejected, Robert plays a deadly game of cat and mouse in a frantic effort to save Julie and a classroom full of children who are unwittingly caught in the middle.
