Daniel Whelan was born in Cheshire, but grew up in North Wales. He left for London in 2000 to study for a degree in acting. His adaptation of Richard Adams's Watership Down premiered at The Riverside Studios and was acclaimed by Mr Adams as one of the best he'd read. His next play, A Harlot's Progress, inspired by the etchings of Hogarth, was well received by TimeOut. Alas, Mr Hogarth was too dead to give his opinion. "
"The Box of Demons, Daniel's debut novel, was winner of the Write Now! Prize.
RT @chapelhillchild: Does anyone know of a Welsh speaking literary agent currently looking for submissions? Or even Welsh-based?
