John Daniel: R.I.P.

More sad news. John Daniel: R.I.P.

From Meredith Phillips, Editor Perseverance Press/John Daniel & Co:

It’s my sad task to report the death of my friend and colleague John Daniel yesterday, after a long illness. He died peacefully at home in McKinleyville, Calif., with his wife and publishing partner Susan by his side. 

During his long career in writing, ghostwriting, editing, bookselling, teaching, and publishing, he wrote four well-reviewed mysteries (the Guy Mallon series), ten other books in various genres, and published hundreds of books by other authors. He’d always wanted a mystery imprint; so after Perseverance Press joined forces with Daniel Publishing, we published over 80 mysteries, with John at the helm in charge of contracts and sub rights.
