Born, raised, and still residing in Vancouver, Daniel spends his days (and sometimes nights) working as an Emergency Room Physician in a downtown Vancouver teaching hospital.

Daniel is also the author of thirteen published novels, which have been translated into thirteen languages. 

His latest novel, THE DARKNESS IN THE LIGHT (Simon and Schuster, May 2022), is a Scandinavian-noir style thriller set in the 2 nd northernmost community in the world. In it, a psychiatrist and social worker team up to investigate an epidemic of what appears to be suicide in Utqiagvik, Alaska. But instead they find themselves thrown into a terrifying journey of treachery and death—one that will horrify this isolated community and endanger more lives.

Daniel received his B.Sc. in mathematics and his MD from the University of British Columbia, where he is now a clinical associate professor and the department head of a major urban ER. He is the proud father of two girls and a poorly behaved but lovable mutt, Milo.

Dan is represented by Samantha Haywood and Carolyn Forde.
