Dan Jolley writes novels, comic books, children's books, and video games, and he doesn't visit his mother as often as he should (according to his mother). His work includes the manga stories set in Erin Hunter's Warriors and Seekers universes, the Transformers video games War for Cybertron and Fall of Cybertron, the Dark Horse Comics YA graphic novel LARP! (with co-writer Shawn deLoache), the Oculus Rift game Chronos, and the mobile game Saber's Edge. Dan lives somewhere in the hills of northwest Georgia with his very patient wife Tracy and five largely useless cats. You can bug him by visiting www.danjolley.com or by following him on Twitter @_DanJolley.
