About Dan

Letters from Blitz jacket WEB.jpg

Dan Santos began writing novels after a successful career as a US diplomat in Europe, Africa and Latin America. Previously, he served as an infantry officer in the US Army. 


His novels continued the direct and no-nonsense style of the diplomatic dispatches he wrote, which galvanized governments and public opinion into action. While his thrillers have fascinated and entertained the political-military elites, his sentimental novella about a beloved dog appears on three Amazon best-selling lists and was translated into Spanish. 


The writer lives with his family in Maryland, USA, near the idyllic setting of the celebrated Rock Creek.
