I adored Daniel from the moment I met him, not just because he was one of the smartest, funniest, most charming human beings I had ever encountered, but also because he was just plain good -- decent and kind into his bones. You don’t meet many people like that these days.
Daniel respected my work and vision on a profound level but also had a keen editorial eye and a stroke of literary genius that took everything I’d written to the next level.
Daniel was immensely patient, comforting, and encouraging -- is it weird that I think of him as my literary midwife? Because I totally do.
