Daniel Martin Elliott has spent his entire career in politics and international development. He worked on political campaigns of presidents and prime ministers around the world, as well as congressional campaigns in the United States. After several years in politics, Elliott moved into the field of international development, where he managed projects in over 30 countries. An unabashed nomad with severe wanderlust - or as the Germans say, "Fernweh" - he's been to eighty-one countries and forty-nine U.S. states. North Dakota will soon be conquered.
In 2011, he was nominated by The Diplomatic Courier as one of the “Top 99 Foreign Policy Leaders Under 33.” He has been published in Foreign Policy and New Global Citizen magazines, and has been interviewed in newspaper, radio, and television in half a dozen countries.
When he's not traveling or writing, Elliott spends time with his two sons, Maxwell and Alexander. He enjoys camping, fishing, playing the guitar, and chess. He's a die-hard sports fan, supporting all Chicago teams (Cubs, not Sox), and Real Madrid.
Elliott grew up in Chicago and now lives in Washington, DC. The Kingmaker is his first published novel. The Kingmaker is a riveting thriller that follows a story of political intrigue in Colombia and was a finalist for the Chanticleer Book Awards in the Global Thriller category.
