Dan Beckmann appears to be an average guy living a common life. That is, until he begins to share his extraordinary collection of surprising stories. He finds adventure the way he finds friends – everywhere. Through his witty, lighthearted and entertaining tales, he reminds us that the best things in life are free, that extraordinary adventures are always waiting just around the corner and that it’s never too late to laugh your way to the finish line. No matter where you are in life, there are people around you who help you step up, step over or step to it – even if you’ve stepped in it!
Dan’s been writing books since he was six years old. His first novel, I Went Tinkle in The Toilet, was a collaborative effort with his illustrator and imaginary friend, Grover. The two were a literary tour-de-force. Often times crayoning their way through four novellas a day, ending only when the crayons became nubby, or it was time for bed. How’d I Get Here? And Why Am I Stealing M&Ms From Air Force One? is Dan’s first solo effort. Aside from being a newspaper guest columnist and a travel writer, Dan also pens pithy emails to his home owners association. He is recommended by 4 out of 5 people who recommend things.
