Daniel Roland Banks
Daniel Roland Banks has led a colorful life, fueling his imagination for telling stories set in the American West. Born in Bakersfield, California and abandoned by his parents in Seattle, Washington, Daniel Roland Banks lived in the foster care system for some years; He was adopted at the age of seven. At sixteen years of age, Mr. Banks left to find his way in the world. He’s traveled internationally, lived in Idaho, Washington, California, Virginia, and now makes his home in Texas with his wife Lora. They have four grown children, of whom they are justifiably proud, not because they are such good parents but because God is good. At one (very brief) point Daniel was one of the 3% of fine visual artists who earned their entire income from sales of their art. He’s a writer, a painter and a sculptor. Daniel is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and Western Writers of America . His book ANGELS & IMPERFECTIONS was selected as a finalist in the Christian Fiction category in the 2015 Reader’s Favorites Book Contest. In 2013, after 40+ years of searching, He found and got reacquainted with his half-brother and a host of relatives from his birth mother’s side of the family. Daniel Roland Banks can’t sing or dance, but he’d like to think he’s considered an engaging public speaker, an accomplished horseman and an excellent judge of single malt Scotch.
