About the Author

Dan Maguire spent his formative years in Western New York. As a young adult he resigned himself to the fact he'd need to acquire a skill others found useful. Pursuant to this end he moved to Wisconsin and has lived there since. He's spent the intervening years improvising his way through a mathematical career while never letting go of his literary aspirations. When he's not rooting for his beleaguered Bills, Maguire enjoys sitting and pondering the ways he can map an improvisation from start to finish, making him the only possible author contradictory enough to have written his debut novel, One Last Improvisation.
