At the age of 19, Coughlin left the haunted town of Watertown, Wisconsin where a real exorcism took place, H.H. Holmes supposedly resided, and a serial killer struck lover’s lane, and joined the Marine Corps infantry as a Machinegunner in an Amphibious Raider Unit (Fox 2/4). Daniel studied screenwriting under the mentorship of acclaimed writer Brian Alan Lane and served as a script analyst for his favorite director, Wes Craven. Daniel is the screenwriter of three commercially successful films Lake Dead, which was selected as one of After Dark Film’s 8 Films to Die For, Farmhouse, starring A-List film and television star Steven Weber (Wings, Desperation, Single White Female) and Ditch Day Massacre. Daniel is the author of six novels, Ted’s Score, Craven’s Red, The Last Customer, The Heartland, Sunny California, and Bloodstained Nightmares. He’s sold numerous short stories to such publications as 18 Wheels of Horror, Hell Comes to Hollywood 2, Strange Tales of Horror, Macabre Cadaver Magazine, and Dark Gothic Resurrected Magazine. Daniel was hailed by Macabre Cadaver Magazine as, “A Promising New Voice in Old School Horror.”
Daniel is a proud member of the Horror Writer’s Association (Los Angeles chapter). He holds a bachelor’s degree in screenwriting from Cal State Long Beach, a professional certificate in Technical and Professional Writing from Cal State Dominguez Hills, and a Master’s Degree in Creative Writing from Full Sail University.
