Birthdate? November 25th (occasionally on Thanksgiving Day in the US)

When did you start writing?  In High School, many, many years ago. I didn’t take it seriously until 2010.

When and what and where did you first get published? My first published story was “Vector Victoria” in L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future, Volume XXVII, in 2011.

What themes do you like to write about? I love the very human struggle to overcome obstacles, man versus him/herself. I also enjoy writing about space and hard science. I don’t know as much as I should about those subjects, but I struggle through the research and try not to mess up too badly.

What books and/or stories have most resonated with you as an author? Why? How do these stories and their characters find expression in your work?  I’m a big fan of Isaac Asimov, Larry Niven, James White. They describe larger realities, worlds filled with so much more than the ordinary. These authors were all great story tellers, and it’s the story more than just the writing that draws you in. Beautiful craft is just the crust of the pie. These authors leave you with plenty of filling, and it’s the story I strive for in my own writing.
 
Biography 
D. A. D’Amico is an enigma wrapped in confusion and stuffed head-first into a fish-flavored paper bag. His writing style is Jackson Pollock meets Scanners, a surreal exploding-head mess of genres and styles where almost anything is likely. He's had more than forty works published in the last few years in venues such as Daily Science Fiction, Crossed Genres, and Shock Totem... among others. He's a winner of L. Ron Hubbard's prestigious Writers of the Future award, volume XXVII. He's also begun self-publishing collections of his work (available soon on Amazon, and autographed copies from his website). He can be found at http://www.dadamico.com, or on Facebook at authordadamico, or in the twitterverse on painfully rare occasions at @dadamico.
