Daniel Serrano was born and raised by his mother in the tough streets of New York and Chicago. The eldest of three boys, Serrano witnessed gangs, crime, drugs, poverty, and even murder, as his family lived the urban Latino struggle. After drifting through menial jobs for years, he enrolled in the Weekend Program at Shimer College and studied the classics.
Serrano went on to earn a law degree from St. John’s University. As an attorney, he has spent the bulk of his career advising politicians and alleged criminals. Daniel lives in New York City with his family and is currently at work on his next book.
