Dan Reilly lives with his wife Aggie in the Adirondacks where he had his first reading thanks to Mohawk poet Maurice Kenny. As a young man, he was lucky enough to attend classes by novelist Max Yeh and poet James Crenner. Dan has worked in films and construction, bartended, driven truck and taxi, written for a newspaper, taught in prisons, owned a business, and lived in NYC and LA. He volunteers with the Saranac Lake Kiwanis and the Whiteface Mountain Ski Patrol. Dan and Aggie are near completion of two children’s books. Atlanta artist Gail Foster is collaborating with Dan on a chapbook.

Dan Reilly’s writing has appeared in Pif Magazine, Closed Eye Open, Beyond Words Magazine, Obelus Journal, Ocotillo Review, SPLASH! and on The New Guard’s BANG! page. His story “Muffled and Distant” received honorable mention in Flash Fiction Magazine. “Dream an Emptiness” won third prize in poetry at The Chestnut Review.
