DAB Cogito Orbis HeadshotDaniel Allen Butler is a best-selling author, historian, and college-educated semi-professional beach bum.  After a stint in the United States Army and later working as a wage-slave, he became a full-time author in 1998. When not writing, he’s a woodworker, gearhead, and model builder, noted for his love of single-malt whisky and Honduran cigars.

While The Nemesis Crystals is only his second work of fiction, he has ten published titles of historical subjects to his credit. These include such works as “Unsinkable”–the Full Story of RMS Titanic; Distant Victory-the Battle of Jutland and the Allied Triumph in the First World War; The Burden of Guilt: How Germany Shattered the Last Days of Peace, Summer 1914; The Day the Lusitania Died: Eighteen Minutes that Shocked the World; Shadow of the Sultan’s Realm: the Destruction of the Ottoman Empire and the Creation of the Modern Middle East; and his newest, Field Marshal–the Life and Death of Erwin Rommel.
