I am Daniel Smith and I write non-fiction books across a broad range of subjects, from Sherlock Holmes and Steve Jobs to serendipity and the Second World War Dig for Victory campaign! See my ‘Books’ page for a full list.
As well as writing, I am a freelance editor and have also worked since 1999 on The Statesman’s Yearbook, a geo-political guide to every country in the world (and all the big international organisations too) that has been published annually for over 150 years.
I live with my wife and two children in East London (just above the kink in the Thames if you’re familiar with the Eastenders opening titles). I can often be found researching a new book in the British Library and I’m always on the look out for new stories that I think I might be able to tell well. Anyway, I hope you’ll find something to interest you and feel free to leave me feedback via the ‘Contact’ page.
