After pumping gas for nine years to put himself through college, Dan Krokos, now twenty-eight, dropped out to write full-time. He is currently hard at work on three separate projects: the final stop for Miranda North in the False Memory series, the next adventure for thirteen-year-old Mason Stark in The Planet Thieves series, and his first adult thriller. All of Dan’s books have been optioned for film or television, and False Memory recently won the International Thriller Writer’s Award for best Young Adult book. He enjoys riding his Harley, playing MMORPGs, and drinking coffee. If he had to choose a faction, he’d choose Dauntless. They have the most fun. But he’d go with Amity if they were into ziplining and jumping into nets and stuff.
