New York Times bestselling author Dan Wells writes a little bit of everything, but is best known for his thriller series “I Am Not a Serial Killer,” and his post-apocalyptic teen series “Partials.” His other novels include “The Hollow City,” about schizophrenia, and “A Night of Blacker Darkness,” which will debut as a stage production in October 2015. His novella “The Butcher of Khardov,” based on the Warmachine tabletop game, was nominated for a Hugo Award–the first piece of media tie-in fiction ever nominated in a prose category. He has received many other Hugo nominations for his podcast Writing Excuses, including one win in 2013. The podcast has also received several Parsec Awards, runs its own writing retreat, and in 2014 published a combination anthology/textbook called “Shadows Beneath.” Also in 2014, Dan compiled and edited an anthology called “Altered Perceptions,” designed to raise awareness of mental illness. Dan’s novel “I Am Not a Serial Killer” is soon to be a major motion picture, filming in Spring of 2015, to be released sometime in 2016. Dan lives in Utah with his wife and five children; he has also lived in Germany and Mexico, and loves to travel every chance he gets. He owns more than 350 boardgames, which makes it more of an addiction than a hobby, but he loves the symptoms and refuses to seek help.
Dan will be at Booths # 2100, 2102, 2201, 2203.
