Danny was born in Manchester and graduated in Law from the London School of Economics and in Theatre Studies from the University of Strasbourg, France. Whilst at University he was introduced to the Hindu epic, The Mahabharata by a friend and thus began a lifetime obsession with storytelling. After a brief foray in to journalism, he set up a company specializing in storytelling theatre and travelled all over the world from Sarajevo to Siberia. This led to work in more conventional theatre, TV and film and saw him perform at The Royal National Theatre, with Alan Ayckbourn in Scarborough and all over the UK. For nearly two years he was part of the David Glass Ensemble’s Lost Child project which involved creating theatre with street children in Manila, Bogota and Pnomh Penh. Danny co-wrote and starred in the Indie movie The West Wittering Affair with his wife Sarah Sutcliffe and in 2014 won the Pears Short Film Award for his screenplay The Divorce which he then co-directed with his brother, David. Danny lives with his wife and three children in North London.
His debut novel Random Acts of Heroic Love was a bestseller in the UK and subsequently published in 21 countries.
