Daniel Fliederbaum is a non-binary, autistic author passionate about stories ranging from realistic coming-of-age romances to the fantastical to the bizarre. A resident of Long Island and a graduate of the University of Idaho, they received a degree in Creative Writing and are far too obsessed with dragons. Luckily for everyone, their cat doesn’t mind the competition so long as she gets fed.
Smash the World’s Shell tells the story of reclusive teenager Ellen, who discovers a mystical ring that grants her the power to travel miles away from everything she’s ever known. In this faraway place, she meets Shard, a friendly dragon who offers to help Ellen grow her nascent magic.
Smash the World’s Shell is currently scheduled for publication in late Summer 2023.
