Author Biography

Daniel Sayre holds a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering as well as a double minor in math and creative writing from San Jose State University.

In spite of this, he tries to remain only a part-time nerd. He is a sucker for a good superhero story and loves the great outdoors, whether hiking, backpacking, obstacle course races, or just getting to see new places. He also likes pizza, spending time with friends, and playing around on his 3D printers.

Cooking and spelling bees… not so much. He lives in California.

Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Becoming Glitch is a work of fiction penned by Daniel Sayre in the paranormal and supernatural adventure subgenres. It is suitable for mature teen and adult readers and is especially aimed at the New Adult reading niche. In this thrilling tale with all the makings of a fantastic superhero adventure, we follow the generally mediocre Andy, who suddenly experiences a series of wildly unpredictable events that change his life when he catches a cold with a supernatural twist. Can he freeze time, and if so, should he? Andy may not have time to figure it out before his skills are needed to save himself from impending danger.

Daniel Sayre has crafted a superb and truly heroic tale for fans of the New Adult reading niche to enjoy. It was wonderful to see the everyman-type of protagonist elevated and challenged by the supernatural happenings all around him. Andy makes for a highly likable central figure the more we see him grow and develop during the trials of the plot. I also really liked the way that the paranormal elements of the work were interwoven with everyday life. This felt eerily realistic, as though this other world of superhumans could easily be operating in plain sight right beside our own. The pace was well maintained to keep things exciting throughout. This was hugely helped by the dialogue-driven scenes with lots of awkwardly humorous hero banter and shifts of attitude when people encountered Andy for the first time. I would certainly recommend Becoming Glitch for superhero fiction fans everywhere as a highly enjoyable read.

Becoming Glitch

Truly outstanding book from a very intuitive author with a very interesting view of the world and potentially the future
