About Me

My photo
Before Steven J. Daniels realized his dream of writing his first novel, he traveled the world working in professional sports, law enforcement, commercial aviation, politics and the entertainment industry. The end result is his own unique perspective, which he utilizes in his writing to enthral and entertain the reader. Though conceived during a U.S. vacation trip, Steven J. is a proud Canadian living in beautiful British Columbia with his wife Jill. If he is not working on his latest story, you can find him walking on the beach, grilling a variety of vegetables and animal body parts or indulging in his favorite pastime of pampering his wife like the Queen of Sheba.

My Favorite Comics Vol 2 - George Carlin Baseball v. Football

Here is the undisputed master of intelligent comedy ... George Carlin.  Carlin was respected by everyone in the biz for his unique perspective on life.  Unfortunately, I never had the opportunity to work with George, but those who did made sure they mentioned the fact in the green room, backstage and forever in their promo.

This particular bit is one of my all time favorites.

Enjoy!

My Favorite Comics Vol. 1 - Irwin Barker

Welcome to first installment of "My Favorite Comics".  Each of these blogs will feature my personal comedy favorites ... some with whom I've had the pleasure of sharing a stage and others I only wish I had.

First up is an old friend, Irwin Barker.  We both hail from Winnipeg, Manitoba and started comedy around the same time.  I learned so much about writing intelligent, clean and funny comedy from Irwin.  Also, he was one of the nicest and funniest guys to be with on the road.  Everywhere he went, he brought joy and laughter just by being Irwin.  He couldn't buy a butter tart without cracking up everyone around him.  One of the most hilarious times I remember was being with Irwin in a sex toy store on Robson St. in Vancouver.  I still laugh when I think about it.  Sadly, Irwin passed away in 2010, but I hope and pray his comedy never will.

So here he is "doin' the Fest" in Montreal ... Mr. Irwin Barker!

I can't believe he's doing this!

Due to the heavy demand (just kidding) ... my novel "Weeds in The Garden of Love" is on sale in all ebook formats for $1.25 ... Hey! that's 75% off !  This offer is only good until July 31, 2011.

Here's the link:  http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/38525

How can I do this you ask?  Well, ebooks save trees, ink, shipping costs, shelf space, etc., so indie publishers like  me can pass the savings on to you.

Tell your friends, neighbors and relatives ... anyone who enjoys a mystery and a great summer read!

That's it ... end of commercial.
