D. J. (Dan) Proctor is a member of the genus and species Homo sapiens, though he plans to have his DNA tested soon to find out what percentage of Neanderthal genes he carries (he’s hoping for above 3%). Note the typical Homo sapiens features of his skull, above. Pronounced chin, face under the skull, globular brain case.

He has always been a fan of science fiction, fantasy, and gaming. “Sanctuary” is Dan’s first novel. He holds a PhD in biological anthropology, which fuels his exploration of “what if.”

Dan lives in Wisconsin with no cats and no dogs. Picking up the poop from a two-year old and the messes from a four-year old is quite enough, thank you.
