D.K. Daniels writing is grounded with realism. He writes many genres; romance, thriller, drama, horror. His stories are gritty in some instances, brutal in others and downright sweet when the touch needs to be applied. The author's primary goal when setting out to write is to entertain himself; some of his writing maybe sad, dark or gentle. So, gritty and rough are things to expect when dramas and thrillers are in place; whereas sweet and gentle can be expected if its a puppy love tale.
