About Danny Zawacki

Danny and Marley

My name is Danny Zawacki. I was born in 1987 in Chicago, Illinois but I grew up in southeastern Wisconsin.

I enjoy reading, writing, running, and the Oxford comma. I ride bicycles and motorcycles. I have a cat to inspire me.

I used to program websites, but now I prefer to write.

I grew up reading Calvin and Hobbes over and over again. To this day, I only need to look at the pictures to tell you what each strip is about, a fact I learned when I perfectly translated French version to English for my French teacher in high school.

In high school, I decided I wanted to do something bigger with my life and decided the Peace Corps was how I would do that. After graduating with an English degree from the University of Wisconsin – Madison, I headed to Ukraine to begin the greatest professional decision of my life. In Ukraine, I taught English to 7-11 grade students and worked with the students and my colleagues for all of us to better understand each other’s culture. I was greatly humbled.

My professional goals are to become involved with the publishing industry in some manner. I would love to be a professional editor or to be an agent and to work together with writers to create the best possible story for publication. Additionally, I would not mind seeing one of my writing projects in print.
