Daniel Lloyd Little was born in Moncton, New Brunswick during the height of the cold war. From an early age he began to show a great interest in Canadian military
subjects. In later years he travelled extensively throughout North America visiting historic sites and museums. The owner of an extensive collection of books and artifacts on military history,
Daniel has continued his study of all aspects of warfare from ancient studies to the current era.
fascination with all things technical led to a successful twenty-eight year management career with Radio Shack, the home electronics
chain. He spent many of those years working in Halifax, Nova Scotia, the east coast home to the Royal Canadian Navy. After
moving to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia in 2004, one of the locations in Unheard, Unseen..., he began a new employment adventure with
Register.com as a web consultant, a position he thoroughly enjoyed. Shortly after publishing Conflict in the North in 2009, Daniel would move back to Halifax, Nova Scotia where he would work on his third novel, the sequel to Unheard, Unseen... His hobbies include the restoration of military artifacts, model building, and NASCAR motor sports as well as the study of
military history & the exploration of historic sites.
know what you’re thinking. A ‘Mission Statement’ is a business term and I am a writer. More so, living in
Canada and my last name not rhyming with Burton or Atwood pretty much precludes any concept of acquiring wealth from my work
– heck, I’m happy just breaking even. If you are looking for literary genius, you'll want to skip ahead to the
next author on your list. At best I suffer from ‘comma-itis’ and at worst, well, sometimes I let my spell-checker
have a little TOO much power (It's airplane hangAr, not hangEr). I know the Governor General will not be calling to inform
me that one of my novels has made it on their ‘list’ - I have a better chance of winning the lottery than a GG,
and I certainly don’t feverishly check the New York Times listings every week to see if their editors have noticed my
literary works. Besides, I'm a little too 'right-wing' for the wine and cheese author set anyway.
literary goal is to provide readers with fun and exciting fiction involving the men and women, past and present, of the Canadian
Armed Forces. The weapons are real. The scenarios are fairly realistic or certainly possible. Well, except to those who think
our military has only ever run around the world on Peace Keep…err…Making missions. To them, I apologize for
the bitter dose of reality. I usually just suggest they Google 'Canadian nuclear weapons' and acquire some real knowledge
concerning Canadian military history.
There are no bigger than life ‘John Wayne’
types in my stories and the cavalry never comes over the hill just in time to save the day. Real life just isn’t like
that, and to suggest otherwise would be a disservice to the brave members of our armed services who unselfishly work at protecting
To them, I give my thanks.
Unheard, Unseen..., by Daniel Little is a riveting adventure thriller involving
the Royal Canadian Navy submarine HMCS Corner Brook and US Navy SEALs in a dangerous covert operation that could save the
world from future nuclear annihilation. It is 2009 and North Korea has purchased four outdated submarine launched ballistic
missile boosters from a French company tasked with destroying the rockets. Because they are not a weapon in and of themselves,
international law governing the sale of strategic weapons can not prevent the acquisition. Both the US and Canadian governments
however, know too well what the unstable North Korean leader intends for the rocket boosters in light of his failure to successfully
launch a missile of his own. When a carefully planned covert mission by US Navy SEALs to intercept the rockets unravels due
to mechanical problems with the US Navy ultra quiet spy submarine USS Jimmy Carter, a replacement must be found and quickly!
The surprising solution comes in the form of a Royal Canadian navy submarine.
Conflict in the North
the North is Daniel Little's second exciting
novel involving the Canada's Armed Forces! This time the Soviet Union is threatening Canada's North and NORAD and all that
stands before them is a small group of Canadian Rangers, and one regular Canadian Army sergeant. It is 1966, and the Cold
War is hot! The Prime Minister knows that Canadian Sovereignty is only being given lip service by the world’s two Super
Powers, but when a team of Soviet Spetsnaz commandos is discovered in Labrador on a mission to disrupt NORAD’s Pinetree
Line communications, he realizes he must act swiftly or risk Canada forever becoming a mere puppet on the world stage. When
nuclear armed CF-101 Voodoo's of the Royal Canadian Air Force are scrambled to intercept incoming Soviet bombers, the world
is brought to the brink of Armageddon.
Daniel is working on the final edits
of his third novel, Submarine Lost! which is a sequel to Unheard, Unseen… Once
again we follow the adventures of Royal Canadian Navy submariners Chief Petty Officer Darren Cole and Chief Petty Officer
2nd class ‘Cookie’ Barnes. US Navy SEAL Ensign Stu Cunningham is back along with a ‘surprise guest’
from Daniel’s second novel, Conflict in the North. Submarine Lost! is an exciting
international adventure neatly tying in characters from the two previous novels. Oh, one other point; we're off to the west
coast this time.
