Dan Morgan lives in West Deptford, N.J. with two pesky, ungrateful rodents who, on a daily basis, knock over things on shelves, eat food he pays for and disturb sleep he’s undeniably earned.

From 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, Dan can be found in his entirely too small cubicle at Slack Incorporated, a leading publisher of medical journals and newspapers, writing for one of Slack’s biggest and most successful publications, Ocular Surgery News, and its scrappy stepsister, Primary Care Optometry News. While his ambitions still lie in fiction, he gets a strange satisfaction (most of the time) from his job, beyond the financial security (however meager) it provides.

When he is not writing at work, writing at home, or writing for The McOwlerson Journal, Dan can often be found strumming on a guitar, moving heavy things at the gym, deepening the imprint of his butt in the center cushion of his living room couch, fiddling with the occasional Playstation 3 and/or Xbox controller, weighing the pros and cons of cleaning his apartment, panicking over the state of the country, and contemplating the universe in his best Thinker pose. Glenlivet, Johnnie, Jameson, and Yeungling also play an important role in his life.

On the whole, Dan is a quirky fellow, stumbling through this thing called life on a plane of existence often slightly, but profoundly, askew from the people around him. While often embarrassed by this, he also finds pride in the uniqueness it allots him.

As the above is true, so is what follows below. We promise.


Dan Morgan and Chuck Norris got into a fist fight on the afternoon of August 23, 2011. Since there were no witnesses, Americans largely attribute their experience of this event to the strongest earthquake to have occurred east of the Rocky Mountains since 1897. Pulling himself out the crater Chuck had made with his head, Dan survived the bout to later become the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of The McOwlerson Journal.

Dan Morgan was once round-house-kicked by Jean Claude Van Dam, Kung Fu-ed by Jackie Chan, body slammed by Mark Henry, knifed by that beastly little girl from Kick Ass, and Hadoukened by both Ryu and Ken simultaneously. Ironically, he looks back on that day with fondness. Dan is Founder and Editor-in-Chief of The McOwlerson Journal.
