Author Biography

Since I was a kid growing up in my family video store in my home state of New Jersey, I had always been fascinated with stories. I love well-written characters with depth, feel real, and experience pain, loss, and deal with real-life consequences. No matter how fantastic the setting or incredible the situation, it’s the characters that make a good story rewarding—the characters make a story real.

It might be the psych major in me, but I really do believe we are individuals over anything else, and that’s what I hope my reader come away with from my stories. That we as individuals are responsible for ourselves and that the right choice isn’t always the easy one, the popular one, or one that is clearly defined. To this end, I had always been fastidious over every detail that I write. I would read and reread the same lines to achieve that balance between description and pace. All in the attempt to capture the emotions I dreamt or envisioned.

Reviewed by Divine Zape for Readers' Favorite

Fox in the City by Daniel Cabrera is an incredible and inspiring fable about a young kit’s journey towards discovering a purpose for its life. The normal day of a fox would be characterized by the same routine — it rises from the mud that fills its fox-hole, it stretches its sore body, and it prepares for a lousy day with the hope of getting something to eat, but this isn’t going to be the same routine for our protagonist. The fox finds something that actually lifts it out of a monotonous lifestyle without meaning, something that would give it a sense of purpose and fulfillment. But is it ready to make the difference by taking the not-before-travelled path?

I have read a few fables in my life, including Animal Farm by George Orwell, but it was such a delight reading Fox in the City. This is a refreshing story with great lessons for readers, a story that will speak strongly to the hearts of dreamers. In this book, the author explores the philosophy of daring and what happens when we have the courage to face our fears and step beyond the security of our comfort zone. The protagonist discovers this in an adventure that will take readers' breath away. One of the things I loved about the book is the excellent prose, which draws the reader into the fox’s world with vivid descriptions and a strong narrative voice. The protagonist is well-imagined and its development will interest readers in many ways. It takes a lot of skill to create a story featuring compelling characters that readers can relate to, but it takes genius to write a fable that speaks straight to the heart of the reader, and Daniel Cabrera has just that. A very inspiring and entertaining story!
